Sustainability: Meet the worlds most sustainable companies of 2014

Corporate Knights, the Canadian media company, has unveiled its ranking of the most sustainable companies in Earth for 2014. Forbes magazine quoted Doug Morrow, Vice President of research at Corporate Knights as saying: “The hallmark of a sustainable enterprise is not just efficiency, but also mechanisms to encourage meritocracy, diversity, innovation and long-term planning. Management teams at sustainable corporations are afforded room to think and plan beyond the next financial quarter.” The ranking – the firm’s 10th annual list of this nature, known as the Global 100 - believes Australian corporation Westpac Banking is the world’s most sustainable company; last year the Sydney-based financial services firm ranked 10th but has zoomed up the ranking on the back of diverse leadership and resource productivity performance. In the number two spot is US-based pharmaceuticals and biotech firm Biogen Idec. Third is Finnish minerals and metals processing technology company Outotec OYJ. The emerging world makes its first appearance at 23rd in the list, with Brazilian consumer staples company Natura Cosmeticos SA
