Studies That Prove the Business Case for Sustainability
When those wild-eyed environmentalists at Goldman Sachs tell you that the
companies that are the leaders in sustainable, social and good governance
policies have 25% higher stock value than their less sustainable competitors,
there’s a business case for behaving in ways that are more responsible to the
planet and to people.
This annotated list describes the ever-growing number of studies, most by
conventional management consulting houses, academic institutions and similar
establishment entities that prove this assertion.
As climate change, natural resource constraints, rapid development in emerging
economies, and a host of other factors drive unprecedented changes in
business, this will only grow stronger.
This document is a resource to help you understand how business leaders can
profit by integrating sustainability into their strategy and value-chain while
securing a competitive advantage.
Leading companies increasingly will evaluate their performance using an
integrated bottom line. This new measure places financial performance in the
context of a firm’s environmental and social impacts to gauge its competitiveness
in the marketplace more holistically. It recognizes the interdependent relation
between business, environment, and society and emphasizes that businesses
gain by identifying shared opportunities to support all three.
Sustainability is Good for Business Good for the People and Good for the Planet!
