S&P 500 members significantly improve and share their sustainability efforts!

Today’s post is from Ronald D. Southard, CEO of SafeSourcing Inc.

As many of our readers are aware, we post regularly regarding social responsibility. A significant area of social responsibility   is  a companies’ efforts to reduce their total carbon foot print. Most recently this author offered a post titled Corporate Social Responsibility on March 11th of this year.

It was a pleasure for today when I was reading the Wall Street Journal to see the headline 72% Share of S&P 500 companies that published sustainability reports last year which was attributed to The Governance and Accountability Institute. According to the article this number is up significantly in the last 3 years from 20% in 2011. Great News!

Now if we can just get the public to support these companies by making sustainability a significant part of a company’s annual results through Triple Bottom Line accountability we might actually have something. To learn more about TBL visit our post titled How should companies determine today’s true value? Part I of III or visit Wikipedia’s definition.

Pay it forward and Support companies that support our environment.
