Arkansas, Arizona Universities are Partners in ‘World Changing Ideas for 2012’

Scientific American has ranked the Sustainability Consortium, which is jointly administered by the University of Arkansas and Arizona State University, among Top 10 World Changing Ideas for 2012.

The consortium is a global organization of businesses, universities and nonprofit organizations that develops science-based tools to advance the measurement and reporting of consumer product sustainability.

The magazine's December issue features 10 “innovations that are radical enough to change our lives.” The editors describe the ideas as “game changers” and “not pie-in-the-sky notions but practical breakthroughs that have been proved or prototyped and are poised to scale up greatly.”
