This month’s theme I hold very much to heart as it has not only been the focus of previous studies I conducted during my academic years, but it is also one of those topics that is gaining momentum across industries and sectors. While the 2014 World Water Week takes place in Stockholm, we acknowledge the greater interdependence of resources, call for solutions for effective management of these resources and use our platform to highlight best practices in sustainable development as well as innovative techniques being used by an ever growing community of sustainable brands across the world. The future of our resources is in our hands so let’s make sustainability the core driver of our businesses and life practices. Enjoy this ‘green’ reading.
