The 2017 Sustainability Leaders: A GlobeScan/SustainAbility SurveyND


GlobeScan and SustainAbility Survey, 28th June 2017.

The Sustainability Leaders survey has been running since 1997 with more than on thousand experts from 79 countries responding to the survey. Unilever has been ranked the global corporate leader in sustainability for the seventh year in a row, with the margin between it and the second and third placed companies growing ever wider. However, the private sector still preforms relatively poorly compared to NGOs (59 per cent of respondents rated the contribution to the sustainable development agenda as excellent), Social entrepreneurs (48 per cent of respondents rated them as excellent), while only 23 per cent of respondents rated the private sector ‘excellent’ in its contribution to the sustainable development agenda.

Most interestingly was the 3rd place company Interface which is the ‘worldwide leader in design, production and sale of environmentally-responsible modular carpet’, and is arguably not a household name. Its presence among companies like Unilever, and its higher ranking than Tesla, Nestle and GE arguably shows that it’s positioning as an environmentally responsible company has elevated its corporate positioning.
