2018 Sustainable Business Survey results are out

Business for Social Responsibility and Globscan do an annual survey of global business leaders to assess the state of sustainability in business. The 2018 report was recently released. This article summarizes the highlights.

Perhaps the most exciting finding is that 75 percent of corporate sustainability professionals say sustainability needs to be better integrated into business strategy to create resilient strategies necessary to address these global shifts.
As one executive told us in interviews for our recent report on Redefining Sustainable Business, “Most big businesses have been working on sustainability with reasonable success for the last 10 to 15 years, but we have been picking the low-hanging fruit, and the next phase will be much more difficult. It is about what you buy and what you sell. It goes into the heart of your commercial operations and investment decisions.”
