This survey will act as a bi-annual barometer of the current levels of commitment and confidence amongst global corporations to drive forward their sustainable business strategies. It will provide unique data to show trends over time of how sustainability leaders across the world perceive how they are making progress in developing and implementing their strategies.
For the purpose of this survey, the definition of Sustainable Business is as follows:
"Sustainable Business is a way of doing business that achieves both profit and progress without having a negative impact on the environment – neither ecological nor social - and therefore avoids compromising the ability of the company and future generations to meet their needs. Sustainable business strategies can address all areas of business operations from natural resource, energy, carbon, water and supply-chain management, to manufacturing, infrastructure, HR, marketing and sales."
