Rio Conference - PwC's Global Sustainability & Climate Change Team Comment on the Progress, Prospects and Legacy of Rio+20

Rio 20 Conference
Malcolm Preston, global leader, sustainability and climate change says: "Rio+20 needed to deliver an international framework to ensure a more sustainable future. 'The Future We Want' is a start, but it is a compromised output, lacking in ambition and practical action. Alone it will not deliver the radical economic, environmental and social transformation needed. On the plus side, important progress has been made on endorsing some of the key themes of the conference – moving towards a more joined up understanding of green growth, defining GDP more broadly, and putting a process in place to move towards the formation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)".
