Public concern about issues such as climate change and the impact of business on society has never been more intense than it is today. Accordingly, sustainability has now risen to the very top of the corporate agenda. Topics such as carbon management, energy efficiency, corporate social responsibility, public safety and regulatory risk are no longer just the concern of functional specialists.
Businesses today need to integrate sustainability and risk management fully into their strategy - not only to minimise potential losses but also to exploit new business opportunities arising from the sustainability agenda. These may include new products and services to meet developing sustainability needs, new technologies to improve sustainability or risk performance, or new business models to access and develop emerging markets and support the creation of sustainable communities.
