A World of Three Zeros: Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment and Zero Net Carbon Emissions

Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus is the father of both social business and microcredit. For his constant innovation and enterprise, the Fortune Magazine named Professor Yunus in March 2012 as “one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time.”

In 2006, Professor Yunus and Grameen Bank were jointly awarded Nobel Peace Prize. In that same year, Time Magazine listed Professor Yunus under “60 years of Asian Heroes” as one of the top 12 business leaders. In 2008, in an open online poll, Yunus was voted the 2nd topmost intellectual person in the world on the list of Top 100 Public Intellectuals by Prospect Magazine (UK) and Foreign Policy (United States). In 2010, The New Statesman (UK) listed him as one of “The World’s 50 Most Influential Figures”. He is the recipient of 60 honorary degrees from universities across 24 countries.
