Joel Makower - "State of Green Business 2008," free download

State of Green Business cover I am pleased to announce the launch of a new report, "State of Green Business 2008," researched and written by my colleagues and I at GreenBiz.com. This is the first report to take stock of green business activities in the United States, and features the debut of the GreenBiz Index, a set of 20 indicators of green business progress that we will update annually. For example, it measures how efficiently companies are using resources, reducing toxics, purchasing green fleet vehicles and renewable power, and reporting social and environmental performance.

The report also features the 10 key green business trends of 2007 as well as dozens of "Editors' Picks," lists we've compiled of the best books, websites, reports, business initiatives, and other resources of the past year.

All together, we think it will help you better understand the green business landscape.

I encourage you to download this free 64-page report, available online at StateOfGreenBusiness.com.
