ABSTRACT
The article offers news briefs related to sustainable development. A report from the City University of London, England revealed that the world's top 25 food companies are not serious about the global diet and health agenda. Research released by United Nations Environmental Program suggests that the harmonization of voluntary standards will result to higher quality and useful corporate sustainability reporting. British independent grant-making trust Bridge House Trust plans to assist a pilot group of its grantees to make their organizations more sustainable.
