5 Reasons to Be Optimistic about Sustainability in 2014 5 Reasons to Be Optimistic about Sustainability in 2014 This is the time of the year when you see endless summaries of 2013. The ones about sustainability can usually be characterized as a bag of mixed news, filled with both good and bad news from the past year. And it can be quite depressing, right? After all, mixed news means that at best we move forward in tiny steps when it comes to sustainability, while we need to be running as fast as we can. Nevertheless, I think there’s no room for depression.

Bernier's Bio: Steve Bernier, who purchased Cronig’s in 1985 with “a handshake,” grew up in Massachusetts, starting what would become his life’s work in groceries at age 16, pushing carts and cashiering at Star Market Co., eventually working his way up to being a District Manager at the main headquarters in Cambridge. Having enjoyed summer visits to the Vineyard, he bought the small Main Street store from Robbie Cronig.

Changing Tack, the final report of the Regeneration Roadmap, a joint project by GlobeScan and SustainAbility, has just launched last week. It focuses on the sustainability challenges that remain great and growing and the role business has to play in providing much needed solutions. For business the premise of the report can be summarized the words of Winston Churchill: “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.” 6 Leadership Attributes for Leading Companies to Sustainability 6 Leadership Attributes for Leading Companies to Sustainability
A fortnight or so ago, we devoted a whole week to the financial ill health of five soccer clubs, but the quintet might just as well have been picked at random. Our loose remit is to cover the three divisions of the Football League, but others have chronicled the worsening situation at a host of locations: from Kettering to Truro; from Darlington to the Ibrox district of Glasgow. Further, these cases are but the very grubby tip of an iceberg of those ‘bad with money’. Over the course of the 2009-10 financial year, 78 of Europe’s top clubs spent more than their income on wages alone, with a tribe of light blues from the North West posting a £121 million loss. What’s the betting that next time we run a Turmoil Week, Plymouth, Preston and Portsmouth will be replaced by Manchester City, Macclesfield and Middlesbrough?

Margaret Hyde: Eco-Friendly Summer Fun for Kids Margaret Hyde: Eco-Friendly Summer Fun for Kids Summer is finally here. We made it through two graduations, class parties and birthdays. As a mom I say phew! I made it with big deep breaths, but my kids are saying, "Now what?" I have one son thrilled to be off to baseball camp, but another who would rather hang at home with me.
Over the past 20 years, economic growth has lifted more than 660 million people out of poverty and raised the income levels of millions more, but growth has often come at the expense of the environment. A variety of market, policy and institutional failures mean that the Earth’s natural capital tends to be used in ways that are economically inefficient and wasteful, without sufficient reckoning of the true social costs of resource depletion, and without adequate reinvestment in other forms of wealth. Moreover, despite the gains from growth, 1.3 billion people do not have access to electricity, 2.6 billion have no access to sanitation, and 900 million lack safe, clean drinking water. Growth must be inclusive to be sustainable. Growth also must be environmentally sound. Sustainable Development - Getting to Inclusive Green Growth
