Sustainability investing

In its 2007 Business in Society Anthology, The McKinsey Quarterly has - among numerous other interesting articles - an interview about Socially Responsible Investing with upcoming Nobel laureate Al Gore and David Blood, partners in Generation Investment Management.

In related news, the World Bank has identified impact and source vulnerabilities of the world's countries in order to delineate country stakes in upcoming climate negotiations. Countries with high source vulnerability face above average negative consequences of climate change measures, while countries with high impact vulnerability are expected to suffer most from the consequences of climate change. As shown on the map, the two types of vulnerabilities are far from congruent, which means that negotiations will be very difficult.
