Green Light, the monthly newsletter by the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Agenda Council on Governance for Sustainability, recently focused its January edition on the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) new Action2020 initiative, set to be officially launched later this month at the WEF’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
The WEF’s Green Light publication highlights promising economic and environmental initiatives, and in its January edition, entitled Can business help the world become more sustainable?, Green Light describes Action2020 as, “a framework for the business community to take concrete and measurable steps toward a sustainable pathway voluntarily.”
