The driving force behind sustainability

March 30, 2011

BLOOMINGTON, IN — For years studies have ranked companies that are the largest, most profitable, fastest growing, fastest declining and most watched in the world, according to a press release.

Thanks to the 2011 Sustainability & Innovation Survey, we know which companies are perceived to be the most sustainable and what apparently has driven them to embrace sustainability as a company-wide objective, the release stated.

The study was a collaborative effort of MIT Sloan Management Review and The Boston Consulting Group and involved more than 3,000 global business executives, the release noted.

According to the release, while not specifically defined in the study, the word sustainable has evolved in recent years, and now refers to such things as fair and equitable business practices toward workers and community, the careful management of natural resources and business profits and economic benefits.
