Yvon Chouinard & Vincent Stanley: The responsible company (2012)

Yvon Chouinard & Vincent Stanley published The responsible company in 2012. Yvon Chouinard is the Founder of Patagonia where Stanley (a nephew), also works. "They draw on their 40 years' experience at Patagonia – and knowledge of current efforts by other companies – to articulate the elements of responsible business for our time." That includes respect for the workers (including the suppliers) and paid vacation is included in their checklist.

Not surprising, since Chouinard also authored Let me people go surfing :) . Who would use Patagonia's gear without paid vacation?
