Businesses and managers must adopt a "First, do no harm" approach to their impact on society and the environment, according to Harvard Business School professor Rakesh Khurana. In this podcast, he calls on managers to cast aside the current "learn, earn, then give" model and to integrate a social and environmental awareness to day-to-day decision making.

Featured Guest: Rakesh Khurana, coauthor of the HBRGreen.org post "Should Managers Have a Green Hippocratic Oath?"
