Bloomberg News has a new section dedicated completely to "all things sustainability." And it's already breaking news, as Sami made clear this morning in his post on renewable energy investments trumping fossil fuels for the first time.

We can't stress enough the importance of our expansion into this space. When speaking to senior executives, many have said that if you don't have a sustainability plan, you don't have a business plan.
