My Sustainability Is Special, Don't Cha Know?

You know how all parents think THEIR child is above average and should be in the AP class?  And the U.S. Congress as a body gets terrible approval ratings but everyone thinks not MY Congresswoman – she’s not the problem – she’s one of the good ones!

Call out the CDC because the same affliction has infected the world of corporate sustainability.  A survey was taken of 1,200 manufacturers of consumer products in the U.S., Germany, China and India, across industries in high tech, food, building materials, and household chemicals. 90% rated themselves ahead of the curve in delivering safety, reliability and sustainability.

Surprisingly (not), 1,200 consumers were asked about these companies and three quarters of them stated the companies have not done enough regarding sustainability initiatives. Not ready for AP classes yet.
