Yearbook 2015/16 "Sustainable Consumption and Production: Towards a Circular Economy"

 

The company is preparing the ninth Yearbook edition in collaboration with the SwitchMed and the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production of the UNEP. In times where material wealth is cherished, global population is rising and there is ever-growing consumption, the process by which products and services are delivered to our doors needs to embrace a sustainable model. On the other hand, decisions and actions taken by consumers may have a serious impact on the environment. The challenge is to manage these interdependencies in a way that human development advances without causing harm to the environment and our planetary boundaries. Circular economy maximises the business potential to transform environmental challenges into economic opportunities, innovation, and better life quality.

 

The Yearbook 2015/16 "Sustainable Consumption and Production: Towards a Circular Economy" is also available as an ebook.















Yearbook 2014/15 "The Power of Collaboration" 
Seven years passed since Global Sustain presented its first Yearbook, triggering a global discussion regarding important sustainability issues. This year, Global Sustain chose the theme “The Power of Collaboration” since partnerships are more than ever needed in order to address universal challenges. Global developments and expectations in economy, environment and technology sectors are among the factors that promote the formation of partnerships, since individual organisations cannot act alone. These partnerships come in many forms, ranging from alliances between businesses and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), to goverments and civil society and they create shared value for all stakeholders.

The Yearbook 2014/15 "The Power of Collaboration" is also available as an ebook.

The fifth Yearbook 2011/12 entiteld "Leadership for Sustainability", aimed at highlighting critical issues and helping galvanise public opinion into positive action. Global Sustain chose this year's theme, "Leadership for Sustainability", because leadership, more than ever, is needed to create a more just, sustainable, economically viable and thriving world. In challenging times such as these, where the world is changing, and changing fast, leadership for sustainability cannot be considered a "luxury" but a necessity. Each sector of the global economy and each corporation and organisation, regardless of its size or geographic reach, needs to provide for the next generations to come. Global Sustain held a special event at the National Library of Greece to present its fifth annual album "Leadership for Sustainability". A high-profile line-up of top experts, business leaders, decision-makers and academia from 16 countries on three continents contributed to Global Sustain's publication, which each year is read by key stakeholders in more than 50 countries.
