This report, independently researched by Verdantix for Wilbury Stratton, explains how today’s sustainability risks and opportunities should affect corporate decisions.
The purpose of this report is to help Board Directors and senior managers involved in implementing sustainability strategy to better anticipate the organisational enhancements needed to achieve positive business results.
Across all industries, Board Directors grapple with the need to define a strategy and implement a plan that answers questions related to sustainability.
The terminology used to describe sustainable business varies by industry, and the relative priority of economic, environmental and social factors is influenced by sector-specific issues.
However, Board Directors need to articulate a vision for how their firm will respond to global consumerism, long-term access to basic resources, social change from urbanisation, environmental and eco-system degradation and the role of big business in society.
