According to the findings of the 2017 Sustainability Leaders Survey by GlobeScan and SustainAbility ‘integrated sustainability values’ has become one of the biggest factors in determining which companies are being seen as being leaders in sustainable development. This is encouraging evidence to suggest that values are indeed becoming the heart of our society.

The Sustainability Leaders Survey has tracked expert opinions globally on the evolution of the sustainability agenda for two decades, along with views on the leading organizations most responsible for driving it forward. Over 1,000 experts in 79 countries were asked, unprompted, to name companies that they see as being leaders in integrating sustainability into their business strategy. A select few corporate leaders continue to gain an increasing share of recognition, with Unilever, Patagonia and Interface leading on sustainable development integration. Eric Whan, Director at GlobeScan, said: “A handful of companies with powerful visions and values have won more share of mind among experts in recent years. Meanwhile, it’s becoming harder for others to break through, even though many are making great progress. This is no reason to stop.”
