Global SustainabilityThe seven steps to sustainability. In a recent study involving over 1,000 CEO’s of companies around the world, over two-thirds admit that business is not doing enough to address global sustainability challenges. And a whopping 97% of those CEO’s interviewed believe that the proper management of sustainability issues will be critical to the future success of their respective businesses.

“Leaders are not just approaching sustainability through the lens of mitigation and incremental improvement – but investing at scale in solutions directly targeted at sustainability challenges.”

With this as a background, the authors provide seven key themes uncovered in their research that help to create value for their companies and have a greater impact on global challenges.

The details are provided in an opinion piece posted on the Eco-Business website.
