Steve Howard pays tribute to Anita Roddick
- 11 September 2007
"I would like to express my deepest sympathy for Gordon Roddick and his family for the loss of Anita.
"Anita and Gordon broke the mould of how businesses work on environmental and social issues and Anita will remain a source of inspiration to many. Anita was not only passionate about environmental and social justice, a brilliant entrepreneur and campaigner but also a fabulous woman who remained warm and approachable, despite her many successes.
"It's a privilege to have known Anita, if not as well as I would have liked, and the support that she and Gordon provided The °Climate Group was worth far more than money alone - it was knowing that they believed in us.
"Anita will remain a hero for our times."
