How are top companies driving revenue growth with sustainable products and services?

KBI Sustainability, Innovation & Growth  

Between 2010 and 2013, revenues from sustainable products and services grew at six times the rate of overall revenues in leading companies we studied–and that’s just the beginning of the surprising benefits we found linked to environment-related efforts and innovation. Our report, Driving Revenue Growth through Sustainable Products and Services, examines the extent to which sustainability is providing business growth opportunities and stimulating innovation. Our evidence sharply rebuts the common perception that sustainability initiatives are not critical to the business, and our company examples–including GE, Toshiba, IBM, and others–show how such initiatives can pay off for consumers, investors, and businesses.
