Ethical Corporation has released its second State of Sustainable Business Report 2016. The report gives an insight into the minds and opinions of sustainability professionals from across the world. Members of the Ethical Corporation community have welcomed the report.
Ronan Dunne, CEO of Telefonica O2, said: “Ethical Corporation’s second State of Responsible Business report provides up-to-date insight into how corporate sustainability is viewed, organised, and prioritised. Over time, it will provide valuable intelligence about how businesses are adapting and innovating to meet some of the world’s most pressing challenges.”
Mariela Vargova, Ph.D. SVP, Sustainability & Impact Investing at Rockefeller & Co, said: “The State of Responsible Business Report captures the new trends in corporate sustainability and importantly addresses issues of materiality and reputation, integration in strategies and operations, and the role of stakeholder engagement.”
Malcolm Preston, Global Sustainability Leader at PwC, said: “I welcome this report which gives us a snap-shot of how the Corporate Sustainability agenda is progressing year on year. It broadly confirms what I see in the market – a growing understanding of the issues at Board level and a recognition that incorporating responsible business principles is not a “nice to do”, but a business imperative for the 21st century.”
