The Report


This is our latest work of art—the BrownFlynn 2009-2010 Sustainability Report. The title, 15 Minutes of Sustainability. 15 Years of BrownFlynn., reflects our desire to tell our history, our story and the powerful impacts of sustainability. In the world of YouTube, E! and iTunes, it is easier than ever to find notoriety, yet harder than ever to hang on to it. With the rapid growth in sustainability, is it just “a flash in the pan”? As Warhol would say, has it had its “15 minutes of fame”? The answer is simple. Sustainability is about the future. It is about successfully meeting present social, economic and environmental needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. As we celebrate our 15th anniversary this year, we are confident that sustainability has and will continue to stand the test of time as a successful business strategy and way of life. Far from being a fad, our longevity and growth are testimonies to the belief that sustainability is becoming the new normal.

In the future, we believe the world will be more sustainable. The impact of this will contribute to the health of businesses, families and our planet. Think about it. What if the famous quote wasn’t “15 minutes of fame” but instead, “15 minutes of sustainability”? If we all spent 15 minutes each day focused on intentionally engaging in sustainable behaviors, what could happen? Throughout our report, we’ll give you an idea of how significant 15 minutes can be.

This report is inspired not only by Andy Warhol’s great words, but also his creativity, memorable works of art and his ability to impact generation after generation. We can only hope to do the same.
