High value of sustainability commitment during recession means companies are coping with the downturn better

The ‘Green winners: The performance of Sustainability-focused companies in the Financial crisis’ report published last year looked at 99 companies on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and/or the Goldman Sachs Sustain focus lists. The report found they were outperforming their industry peers by around 10% over three months and increasing to 15% over six months. This suggests that sustainability spending is essential to beat the recession and not an additional tool as many believe.  

This interesting and thought provoking report is available to download from this page.
