The Sustainability Yearbook 2010, published by SAM and PricewaterhouseCoopers, offers you an overview of the results of SAM’s 11th annual assessment of corporate sustainability practices, which provides the basis for the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI). In 2009, the sustainability performance of more than 1,200 companies was evaluated. It is encouraging to see a steady increase in participation rates in our assessment, which we believe clearly reflects the rising awareness and importance of corporate sustainability management even in times of crisis.

Nowadays more and more companies give account of their sustainability policies and performance through special reports. These reports, often referred to as corporate responsibility reports or sustainability reports, have developed Foreword over the past decade from one subject reports (often only environmental or social) into fully fledged reports that integrate issues on the dimensions of planet, people and profit. With better standards on CR reporting evolving, the quality of those reports has also increased. A sound result of those developments is the rise in the number of reports that include a third party assurance statement.

While the global challenges related to sustainability are manifest, defining how businesses can meet the challenges can be daunting. Sustainability can encompass a broad range of issues that affect business — from pollution and climate change to education, poverty, health and human rights. It involves a connected world with a broad range of stakeholders—from employees and communities to governments and NGOs. And it includes operations in parts of the world with differing jurisdictions, regulations and standards of practice. Not surprisingly, businesses often wonder where to begin.
