Almost 70% of CEOs understand the value and importance of sustainability within their organisation, according to a survey conducted for Ethical Corporation’s State of Sustainability 2015 report.
The report is the first annual survey that aims to gauge the current state of corporate responsibility and sustainability around the world. The study acknowledges that sustainability has “largely escaped from its silo and is now a vital aspect of strategic planning”, as a result more companies are now considering and implementing different strategies.
Almost 1,500 individuals, of which 65% identified themselves as owners or board members, answered in depth questions on sustainability, from what it meant to their organisation to how sustainability will evolve over the next five years.
Some 89% of corporate respondents said that sustainability is becoming an increasingly important part of their business strategy.
