The State of Green Business 2017

The annual GreenBiz and Trucost assessment of corporate sustainability in the US and worldwide

Each year, the State of Green Business report looks at 10 key trends and dozens of metrics to assess the progress companies are making to address the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.

The report is produced through a partnership between sustainability intelligence provider GreenBiz and Trucost. It comprises the annual State of Green Business Index, a review of trends in sustainability performance over the last five years for the largest 500 companies in the United States, as well as the largest 1,200 companies globally.

Among the 10 key trends discussed are the sustainability applications of “blockchain” technology, solutions to the risks of water scarcity, environmental performance as a fiduciary responsibility for investors, and the rapid growth of innovation in sustainable materials.
