Responsible Competitiveness

I recently received word of AccountAbility’s State of Responsible Competitiveness report, which is a global ranking of countries balancing responsible business practices with growth.

I like the idea of clustering the countries in the rankings as innovators, asserters, compliers, and starters (I like categories). The regional studies were interesting, too. There are also bits about corporate social responsibility.

The Nordic countries top the Responsible Competitiveness Rankings. Canada rounds up the top 10. The U.S. comes in 18th.
