Sustainability can no longer be managed in a silo, nor can our clients focus only on mitigating negative impacts on society and planet. Instead climate and sustainability are increasingly being built into the core of organisations, reflected in purposes and missions, managed across operations and crucial to engagement with investors and policymakers alike.
Organisations who recognise these changes and take action to reorient their strategic directions have the potential not only to protect but to enhance their reputations and positioning for future success. In fact it will become a license to operate for most firms and institutions.
Being a sustainable company means to understand and actively manage the environmental, social and governance ("ESG") impact along your value chain, and ensuring that your company's business model will remain viable in the future. The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals provide a framework and guidance for this. Companies need to focus on those aspects which are most important to them.
