Report Worth Reading: 2016 State of Green Business

The SSC Team April 14, 2016 Tags: , , Strategic Sustainability Consulting No comments

Green Biz delivers again on its 2016 State of Green Business report, assessing its own predictions and setting out 2016 trends. 

We love this report, both for its exciting and optimistic look at what we should see in the coming months, and for the critical look at how companies are actually performing on sustainability metrics.

  • Trends to look out for in 2016:
  • Talk about the circular economy
  • Increased focus on green infrastructure
  • Carbon recycling
  • Microgrids
  • The b-to-b sharing economy
  • Intense focus on our oceans

Corporate performance gets a mixed bag. As we all know, we’re nowhere near where we need to be to consider human activities sustainable, so look at this report to see where gains are being made (and where they’re still not enough).

Finally, what’s going to continue to drive sustainable investment? In part, the money.

What is the trend you’re most excited to see come to the center of the sustainability conversation?  Let us know in the comments.
