Five Early Trends for 2011
At the end of last year, SustainAbility’s team wrote, debated, and then re-wrote a blog highlighting ten sustainability trends from 2010. With another year now well underway, we’re beginning to see which trends may be shaping the landscape most for 2011. This week, we explore five early candidates – from some just now coming into focus to other, well-known ones now looming larger than before. We hope you’ll join the discussion and share your thoughts on the key issues appearing (and not appearing) on this list.
Keys to Transformative Leadership
The sustainability agenda is in need of transformative leaders – companies and visionary individuals capable of looking beyond the business models that have carried us through the past hundred years and developing new ones, new markets and new ways of creating value. This topic – transformative sustainability leadership – is the subject of GlobeScan and SustainAbility’s latest joint survey and research which culminated with a public webinar on May 4. Highlights of the webinar, featuring Chris Coulter of GlobeScan and Jeff Erikson of Sustainability, are available in our Library.
Our next survey will explore the future of energy. Take the survey yourself right now, and stay tuned for the results, due out in June 2011.
