Forum for the Future releases the report during a critical year as Mexico hosts the World Environment Day on June 5.

Articles include a review of whether President Felipe Calderón put Mexico on the path to a greener life written by Forum for the Future’s Ben Tuxworth and Jonathon Porritt, author of the provocative book Capitalism.

In More Energy, Less Carbon Ron Buchanan looks at the country’s efforts to kick the high-carb habit. Jo Tuckman looks at the green revolution in Mexico City. Sun, Sea…Sustainability reviews the ecotourism and sustainable travel movement written by Ron Mader and Ben Tuxworth.

The publication is being distributed in English and Spanish versions on the Green Futures website: Mexico is at a critical point in its green revolution
