Keeping up with the sustainability trends…

As I manoeuvre myself for a move back to Canada, I’m increasingly realizing the importance of staying up to  date with the latest trends on sustainability & business.  Figuring out your career path is no easy task;)

Aside from reading the news & blogs, I try to keep an eye on the big consulting firms’ reports.

This one from McKinsey came in my mail this morning. Some good numbers to look to.

How companies manage sustainability: McKinsey Global Survey results

Most companies are not actively managing sustainability, even though executives think it’s important to a variety of corporate activities. Those that do are reaping benefits for themselves and for society.

I feel like that’s good news for someone like me:)

Taking a deeper look, McKinsey Quarterly has some good sections on climate change, business in society and growth & innovation.

On another note.. and this deserves its own post completely…

UNCONFERERNCE JYVÄSKYLÄ 2010 NEXT FRIDAY! (yep, putting those Art of Hosting skills to test with our first Open Space Tech for business of social & env change)

    Good to see you blogging again!

    Too bad I am so busy at the moment, otherwise the Unconference would have been on my agenda. Might copy the idea, though, we’ve started running OpenCoffee Meetups here in Tre, and this might just fit in.

    So what’s this whole business of moving back to Canada?

    Take care =)

    Hendrik! Great to hear from you:)

    Would have loved to have you at the unconference too, but understand. How are the OpenCoffee Meetups going?

    Yeah, likley moving back, not sure what to do but we’ll see. We should catch up though before. A trip down to tampere would be nice:)

    OpenCoffee Meetups go great, 1st on in February had over 30 attendants, today is the second one, prolly around 20 people attending, lets see.

    I’m leaving for a week on holidays tomorrow, but if you come down to Tre let me know – phone or email work best, Google finds both in case you don’t have them 😉
