Financial Times Special Report on "Sustainable Banking"

The London-based Financial Times newspaper recently published an excellent special report called "Sustainable Banking." The special report was part of the newspaper's June 3, 2010 North American issue.

According to the special report:
"Sustainable forestry, sustainable fishing, sustainable farming -- the idea of managing the earth's natural resources in a prudent way has been gaining ground rapidly in recent years...Now, so the optimists of the world's financial markets believe, there is a unique opportunity to make sustainability an integral part of banking."
Microfinance and reducing banks' carbon footprint are two of the stories in the special report.
