Should Sustainability now be a board level priority for the world’s largest companies?
In short, yes.
Global investors, under increasing pressure from regulators, governments, and clients, are increasingly calling for business leaders to develop long-term strategies to mitigate climate change risk, reduce breaches of their social obligations, and strengthen corporate governance. Yet despite quantitative evidence that sustainable companies financially outperform their competitors, it remains challenging for CEOs and corporate boards to know what they can do to integrate Environmental, Social & Governance [ESG] issues, and Climate Risk management, into their strategy and boardroom activities. There is no longer competitive advantage for a business to simply provide data to the markets via the company’s in-house sustainability team.
