Spend your dollars at planet-friendly businesses

One of the best ways to promote sustainability is to spend your dollars at businesses that are making sustainability a priority.  But how to know who’s really green and who’s not?

Newsweek Magazine has compiled its annual Green Rankings of the 500 largest publicly traded companies on the planet.  You’ll recognize some names near the top – like IBM (#4), Marks & Spencer (#10) and Bell Canada (#13) – and some near the bottom, like Exxon (#440), Halliburton (#421) and Suncor (#320).  The list is easily searchable by country or by industry sector.  Check it out here; read about Newsweek’s methodology here; and then strive to make sustainability part of your shopping decisions!
