“There are an incredible number of new ideas, programs, products, and services being created which will have a very positive impact on sustainability,” said Joel Babbit, Chief Executive Officer of Mother Nature Network. “And most interestingly – they aren’t all from large corporations. Many are developed by very small companies, schools, non-profit organizations – some even by single individuals.”
“Thanks to the ingenuity, passion and innovative thinking of so many people, we’ve seen an increase in sustainable technologies, processes and options in the past decade,” said Andrea Thomas, senior vice president of sustainability at Walmart. “These new ideas have helped companies, like Walmart, make significant progress toward our sustainability goals. Walmart has a responsibility to use its size and scale to influence positive change, and we believe ‘The Leaderboard’ will be a place to showcase cutting edge ideas and spark further adoption.”The Leaderboard will profile dozens of forward-thinking innovators, with new stories published every week.
