MIT’s recent study, The Innovation Bottom Line, makes a compelling business case for sustainability. In sum the message of the study is more companies view sustainability as a core business driver–and the results include a culture of innovation and improved brand reputation. The study has some methodological flaws, but overall provides more ammunition to the case that heightened focus on social and environmental issues matters to business.
