Visser and McDonough Among Top Sustainability Leaders of 2012

We are proud to announce that the sustainability achievements of two Greenleaf authors, Bill McDonough and Wayne Visser, are being recognised by leading think-tank CSR International. The group has created the ranking of Top 20 Sustainability Leaders of 2012. The initial list of nominations was generated from a call for suggestions during Phase 1 (February-June 2012). In Phase 2 (July-October 2012) CSR and sustainability experts from around the world were polled to choose their top sustainability leaders*. Participants were able to vote for up to 10 individuals from a given list. 893 votes were cast.

In alphabetical order, the top 20 leaders are:
