The Year in Sustainability: Top Stories of 2014

We haven’t quite yet made it to 2015, but summaries of this year’s top sustainability stories are already being published. According to Loop Initiatives, the important news of 2014 includes the explosive growth of green bonds, the increased benchmarking of portfolios, the greening of supply chains, and the expansion of transparency re. ingredients in consumer goods and building products. There’s every reason to believe that these significant developments will continue to be significant and that they will continue to develop in 2015. Upcoming lists should add to the tally of major changes in business practices and strategies, and the idea that a lot of progress has been made in the past year. That’s a good feeling with which to start the New Year.
