2018 was a big year for many of the issues that BSR works on: We saw climate, human rights, and women’s empowerment make headlines around the world, from the release of the new IPCC reports and protests in France, to the removal of military officials from social media in Myanmar, to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements in the United States.

We also spent this year thinking about the major forces that we see shaping our world for decades to come, from artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and blockchain to the increasing impacts of our changing climate on people and supply chains globally.

We know it can be easy to miss a blog post or a report launch in today’s news cycle, so we’ve rounded up some of your favorite pieces of content from this year.

Without further ado, here they are, for your end-of-year reading pleasure.

Blogs and Case Studies

Reports

We published a lot of great content on other cross-cutting issues, too, including a series of reports about the nexus between climate and other key sustainability topics, a set of papers on the human rights implications of artificial intelligence, a new video and guidance for more gender-sensitive supply chains, and the Sustainability Short Takes video campaign on hot topics in our space, which we will continue next year.

This is my last post as the editor-in-chief of the blog—while I’m staying here at BSR, I’ll be moving over to do more work directly with companies on sustainability management and strategy. Of course, you’ll be in great hands with my successor, Aimee Louise Bataclan, and we’ve got lots of exciting content lined up for you in 2019.

From me and my colleagues here at BSR, we wish you a safe and happy new year, and we look forward to working with you next year to create a more just and sustainable world.
