The second article, "Closing the loop on sustainability information," on page 32, looks at software available now to collect and distribute data to help employees make decisions that weigh the environmental, social, and economic impacts of operations. The third article, "The CIO's next leadership opportunity: Sustainability," on page 56, examines steps the IT executive can take to move the enterprise forward.
This issue also includes interviews with executives at enterprises that are leading the practice of embedding sustainability or creating the next generation of solutions necessary to do so.
