Business sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) focus is an outgrowth of business purpose to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. Business believes social, environmental, and economic activities and performance are interrelated – each impacting the others.
The efforts focus on creating a sustainable future for business, customers, and society. Business believe that improving sustainability performance gives insight that helps their customers do the same. CSR and Sustainability focus on three key metrics: environmental, social, and economic. Organisations have realised that the Sustainability is a journey not a destination.
Global business organisations set three lofty aspirations that will help them achieve these goals: becoming Faster in the marketplace; Stronger by transforming capabilities, cost, and culture; and better by integrating purpose into their business strategy and brands, whilst doing even more for planet and people.
Across the world, quality of topsoil is degrading, packaging waste is piling up, more regions are experiencing water scarcity, and climate change is dangerously accelerating. These pressures threaten the long-term ability to feed a growing global population.
Business have not only an opportunity, but a responsibility to use their scale and reach to help build a more sustainable that can drive economic growth and social development, while protecting and restoring the planet and resources.
