The New Sustainability Champions

The World Economic Forum, in partnership with The Boston Consulting Group, has just published a report, Redefining the Future of Growth: The New Sustainability Champions, which identifies a group of 16 companies from developing countries that have adopted, and are profiting from, advanced sustainability practices. The idea is that these companies will serve as role models for others in developing countries but GallonDaily suggests that these companies may also show producers and governments in developed countries that developing country manufacturers are catching up with, and in some cases surpassing, developed country companies in terms of sustainability initiatives. In addition, the case studies provide illustration to Canadian importers of some of the opportunities for sustainable products that are available from developing countries.

The full report, a very encouraging read, is available at http://reports.weforum.org/new-sustainability-champions/
