GLRPPR Sector Resource: Six Growing Trends in Corporate Sustainability [2013]

Title:
Six Growing Trends in Corporate Sustainability [2013]

Abstract:
Our 2013 survey looked at how companies are responding to a wide range of internal and external forces related to environmental sustainability risks and how well companies are prepared to address them. Six trends emerged: -- The "tone from the top" is key to heightened awareness and preparedness for sustainability risks. -- Governments and multilateral institutions aren't playing a key role in corporate sustainability agendas. -- Sustainability concerns now include increased risk and proximity of natural resource shortages. -- Corporate risk response is not well paired to the scale of sustainability challenges. -- Integrated reporting is slow to take hold. -- Inquiries from investors and shareholders are on the rise. The survey tells us that companies' response and approach to sustainability issues are influenced significantly by the "tone from the top" - that is, how and how much senior management are engaged in the conversation.
