GlobeScan publishes 2016 Sustainability Leaders Survey

GlobeScan has published its 2016 Sustainability Leaders Survey, the longest-running survey of its kind which tracks expert opinions on sustainable development leadership for more than 20 years.

The GlobeScan/SustainAbility Leaders Report is the longest-running survey of its kind and has tracked expert opinions on sustainable development leadership for more than 20 years.

In this latest survey, produced in partnership with Sustainable Brands, GlobeScan analyses the viewpoints of over 900 sustainability experts to answer a number of pressing questions.

Experts in 84 countries were asked, unprompted, to name three companies that they believe are leaders in integrating sustainability into their business strategy.

Four in ten experts (43%, up five points from 2015) mentioned Unilever as a global leader on sustainability, a position that the company has maintained for the sixth year in a row (no other company has maintained top recognition for so long in the 19-year history of the survey).

When asked to identify corporate sustainability leaders that are headquartered within their own regions, experts tend to name consumer-facing companies.

Unilever leads in Europe (46%) and Woolworths in Africa (18%). In Latin America, Natura leads by the widest margin, being mentioned by close to half of all experts (47%).
