An emerging challenge for company executives is how to successfully align social and environmental ambitions with bottom-line financial results. Most executives would agree that a sustainability focus is becoming more important to a company’s financial success; however, because sustainability most significantly impacts indirect financial factors, such as corporate behavior, practices, policies, and risks, many companies struggle to quantify and strategically drive the financial value of sustainability.
The following are things you should consider:
- Do you find it difficult to quantify and communicate the value of your sustainability initiatives?
- Are you feeling increased pressure from stakeholders to synergize sustainability ambitions with financial objectives?
- Do you know which sustainability opportunities stand to create material financial value?
