January 2011

Hello Friends, Hello New Year.

It’s time to make resolutions, to change unhealthy behaviour or start a project. Whatever our choices, it’s time to reflect on the change we want in our lives - and commit to making that change.

For the most part, sustainability is about integrating social and environmental factors into the business model - into functions and business lines, products, purchasing, governance, budgets, incentive compensations systems, etc. It’s a new way of doing things.

All the best for a happy, healthy, sustainable New Year.
