London, 29 April 2013 – Unilever has once again retained its top ranking in the latest sustainability leaders survey. Patagonia continues to rise in the eyes of sustainability experts and Puma has entered the ‘top 10’ for the first time.
The Sustainability Leaders is the latest GlobseScan / SustainAbility opinion survey and asks over 1,000 experts which sectors of society and which companies are most effectively advancing the sustainability agenda.
While leadership examples are called out what is also consistent in the opinion of experts is that these examples are not nearly enough. Only national governments – whose paltry leadership on sustainability was recognized by all stakeholder respondents, including experts in government – rank lower than corporate leaders in advancing the sustainability agenda. This is an all too familiar theme in the global workshops and research GlobeScan and SustainAbility have conducted for The Regeneration Roadmap.
The GlobeScan / SustainAbility Surveys are in field around six times each year, and provide a regularly updated expert perspective on a range of timely topics.
