Welcome to the Transatlantic Debate Blog with Kathy Miller Perkins and Katrin Muff. Over the next year, Kathy and Katrin will be debating about the business of sustainability and the sustainability of business from both sides of the Atlantic, examining best practice examples and current issues through their dialogue, with a clear practitioner focus. There will be one post a month. We encourage comments and contributions to the debate, so please get involved!
