These days, you would be hard pressed to find a major global company that isn’t pursuing sustainability initiatives. Few lack a strategy for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, for example. Indeed, thanks to mounting pressure from regulators, consumers and their own employees and shareholders, more and more companies worldwide are starting to provide evidence of a shrinking carbon footprint.
Most companies also recognize that compliance with emissions reporting requirements is just one aspect of more responsible environmental and social stewardship.
With energy costs soaring, risks of all kinds on the rise and shortages of even basic natural resources such as water, companies need to take as broad a view of sustainability as possible.
