The ten years since the 1992 Rio Earth Summit evoke a time of evolving linkages between business and sustainable development, marked with tremendously important milestones. While we yet again get ready to secure those linkages by addressing the many past challenges, and the many more to come, the need lies in voicing the ever holistic view of business and sustainable development.

The World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) took place in Johannesburg, South Africa, from August 26 to September 4. The high-level conference brought together as many as 65,000 participants from all nations and sectors: from governments, NGOs, civil society, labor unions and of course, business.
