A report out this week from the Ethical Corporation has found that sustainability is being taken seriously by top management.
Based on the responses of nearly 1,500 sustainability and CSR professionals from all over the globe; 71% of respondents said their CEO was convinced of the value of sustainability. 89% of the survey’s corporate respondents said that sustainability is becoming an increasingly important part of their business strategy.
The findings chime with other surveys, which have identified the increasing boardroom acceptance of the importance of sustainability. For example, McKinsey in 2014 found that sustainability was a top three priority for 49% of CEOs, up from 34% in 2010.
