Sustainability is one of the most relevant and uniting issues of our time: Students across the globe are advocating for more action on climate change. Governments and institutions are pledging to back a United Nations campaign aiming for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. And investors are recording significant growth in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investments.
With these trends in mind, now is a critical time to rethink and transform your approach to sustainability. Rather than view it as a compliance measure for regulatory requirements, or as a way to maintain the license to operate, sustainability must be fully integrated into your company's ecosystem. If approached holistically, sustainability can be a source of value creation and competitive advantage. To fully realize the potential of sustainability's impact on your business, you must develop and implement a future-proof business model. By demonstrating your commitment to sustainability, you can build greater trust and loyalty among your investors, employees and customers.
