Sustainability Consensus Gap: Perception is Reality
The bonds between sustainability and financial performance are strengthening. For this relationship to become symbiotic, however, organisations will need to become truly stakeholder-centric. In this research, Criticaleye’s Global Sustainability Forum 2022 Partner, Accenture, explains how business success and competitiveness are dependent on stakeholder alignment and stronger relationships.
Key takeaways include:
Just under half (49 percent) of employees believe their senior leaders ‘walk the talk’, when it comes to sustainability.
To operate more sustainably and equitably, 71 percent of respondents recognise that it will require a ‘fundamental organisational change’.
Companies with stronger positive alignment between executives and employees are financially outperforming those where alignment is weakest.
