Greenbiz recently released their 12th State of Green Business, 2019 report, which contains a wealth of pertinent information for those involved in the world of sustainability.
Full of current data about the industry, the report also offers a look at 10 trends sustainability professionals should be keeping track of during the coming year.
In an interesting comparison with their 2009 report, Greenbiz highlights how many of the issues from 10 years ago are concerns again, although with a greater sense of urgency now.
While there is a lot of concerning news in the 2019 report, there are also some positive notes including a continued increase in renewable energy procurement, growing electric vehicle purchases with automakers around the world promising dozens of new EV models in coming years, and an increased commitment to eliminating plastic waste around the world.
Produced with a goal of taking a step back and diving deep into the progress — or lack thereof — being made in corporate sustainability practices, this report is a must read for those working in sustainability.
