The bigger the company, the more opportunity for sustainability

Sustainability is a hot topic for private companies, especially in the lead up to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development to be held in Rio de Janeiro in June.
For the media company Bloomberg, sustainability just makes good business sense according to Curtis Ravenel, who is the Global Head of Sustainability there.
He says the company gets a 52% return on investment on the environmental projects and that other businesses can achieve similar success by going for long-term projects that are financially viable, particularly as technology improves.
Mr. Ravenel also says Bloomberg is trying to shore up sustainability commitments from both companies and investors to bring to the Rio+20 conference.
