As a result, businesses have realised that sustainability programmes and reporting are becoming an essential component of their business risk management and strategy. Done well, this can help to strengthen brands, differentiate offerings and manage operational risk and efficiency – providing real business benefit. Sustainability has moved from the realm of compliance reporting to that of voluntary and 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 and stepping up to join various frameworks such as committing to the UN Global Compact, Sustainable Development Goals and reporting via the Global Reporting Initiative.
