Webinar Recap: The 2016 GSS Sustainability Leaders Report

GlobeScan, SustainAbility and Sustainable Brands were delighted to host a webinar on June 29 (for Europe, Americas and Africa time zones) and June 30 (for Asia and Oceania time zones) to discuss the results of the 2016 edition of the GSS Sustainability Leaders Report (press release | full report).
The GlobeScan/SustainAbility Leaders Report is the longest-running survey of its kind and has tracked expert opinions on sustainable development leadership for more than 20 years. In our latest survey, produced in partnership with Sustainable Brands, we analyze the viewpoints of over 900 sustainability experts to answer a number of pressing questions, including:

  • Which companies, NGOs and national governments do experts believe are leading the sustainability agenda? What key factors set them apart?
  • Which actors have made the most progress on sustainable development over the last two decades and which organizations face the highest expectations to advance the global agenda?
  • What are expert recommendations for companies on how to most effectively contribute to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals?
Our Europe/Americas/Africa webinar was led by Chris Coulter, CEO of GlobeScan, Mark Lee, Executive Director of SustainAbility, with special guest Erin Meezan, Vice President of Sustainability at Interface, the world’s largest manufacturer of modular carpets for commercial and residential applications.
