This infographic from The Hinrich Foundation introduces the 2023 edition of the Sustainable Trade Index (STI), an annual ranking of 30 global economies developed in conjunction with the IMD World Competitiveness Center.
The purpose of the STI is to stimulate meaningful discussions about the linkages between global trade and sustainability, serving as a practical tool for governments, policymakers, and researchers.
Overall Ranking for 2023
The overall STI rankings, which are visualized in the first chart of this infographic, are also shown in the table below.
The 2023 rankings are determined by averaging each economy’s performance in three underlying pillars of sustainability (Economic, Societal, and Environmental). Altogether, the three pillars are supported by 71 individual indicators.
