Global 100 – Most Sustainable Corporations in the World

| Wednesday February 1st, 2006 | 1 Comment

I am sure many of you thought there was NO such thing as a SUSTAINABLE company, but we were wrong!
Unveiled during the World Economic Forum last week in Davos, the Global 100 is a project collaboration between Corporate Knights Inc., a Canadian Magazine for Responsible Business, and Innovest Strategic Value Advisors Inc. , a research and advisory firm specializing in analyzing companies’ performance on environmental, social, and strategic governance issues, with a particular focus on their impact on competitiveness, profitability, and share price performance.
Not surprisingly, approx. 75% of the companies come from Europe, with the greatest number from Great Britain. There are only 17 companies from the United States.
I advise you to check out both the Global 100 list as well as the methodology.
ED Notea similar post on Treehugger has drummed up quite a bit of controversy. Have a look at the comments there.

    Ha, Brittish Airways is on there! Isn`t aviation the least sustainable industry in the world? The Tyndall Climate Change Research Centre seems to think so, and this issue is highlighted on treehugger at the moment.
    I did an article about aviation on climate change a while back: http://climatechangeaction.blogspot.com/2005/07/uk-climate-policy-and-aviation.html
