What was once not long ago considered "nice to have" is nowadays crucial to a company's long-term economic success: Sustainability plays a central role in how business is conducted.

At the end of the day, sustainability is tantamount to a company's "right to play".

They expect companies to take responsibility by identifying the ecological and social impact of their business models, and steering it through sustainable development.
