What does the future hold for businesses’ environmental and sustainability goals?

Sustainability has rightfully found its place at the centre of strategy for many global businesses of all sizes and sectors. Organisations that do not act fast and make it a strategic business priority are risking their future.

Who we surveyed

1,123 sustainability professionals across 11 countries and 13 industries

  • 93%

    of respondents identified at least one barrier to progress against environmental goals

  • 38%

    of organisations surveyed use at least one international standard to drive progress

  • 75%

    of respondents expect to see independent verification grow over the next five years

What we see driving these results are regulatory and stakeholder pressures. Stakeholders - from customers to investors - are pushing for more action up and down the value chain.
