You may think that sustainability issues are already embedded into your strategy and operations. But recent research by the UN Global Compact/Accenture 2011, suggest that this level of confidence may be interpreted as an “overconfident assessment of companies’ progress, or may be evidence of a lack of understanding of what full integration really entails”.

Numerous benefits are on offer to companies who embrace this challenge and truly embed sustainability into core business:

  • Enhance reputation

  • Gain commercial opportunities from a growing green market

  • Upgrade risk assessment and mitigation

  • Improve employee recruitment and retention

  • Position yourself a step ahead of inevitable regulation

  • Develop a unique competitive advantage - remember, companies focused on sustainability outperformed their peers by 15% during the financial crisis*
