Sustainability consulting: a holistic view of sustainability

Sustainability was just a “nice to have” not so long ago, but it has now become crucial to long-term economic success, playing a key role in corporate decision-making. The key question is what effects the company’s activities have on the environment and the public, and how the topic influences business models. Ultimately, corporate sustainability is indispensable for retaining the “right to play” in the market.

Customers, investors and the public are no longer solely interested in hard financial figures. They also want information on companies that goes beyond financial reporting. They expect companies to shoulder responsibility by being aware of the social and environmental impacts of their business models, and driving sustainable development to manage these impacts.

“One thing is clear: you can’t dodge sustainability any longer. Anyone who wants to remain competitive in the future needs to fully understand how their own business activities impact society and the environment. So you shouldn’t just see sustainability as an obligation or something that needs to go in your reports – it’s an opportunity to secure the future of your company.”
