Businesses have started to realise that sustainability programmes and reporting are becoming an essential component of their business risk management & strategy. Done well, this can help to strengthen brands, differentiate offerings & manage operational risk & efficiency – providing real business benefit. Sustainability has moved from the realm of compliance reporting to that of voluntary & proactive corporate participation. In tomorrow’s world, sustainability needs to be embedded in everything a company does, not just linked by an annual report. In this way, organisations all around the world are establishing sustainability strategies & stepping up to join various frameworks such as committing to the UN Global Compact, SDGs & reporting via the Global Reporting Initiative.
