Study shows 70% of companies have no business case to support sustainability (11/25)
The study also said that sustainability will become increasingly important to business strategy and management over time, and the risks of failing to act decisively are growing.
While 92% of respondents said their company was "addressing sustainability in some way," 70% said they still had not developed a clear business case for it.
At the same time, fewer than 25 percent of survey respondents said their company had decreased its commitment to sustainability during the economic downturn.
The take-away: companies that fully integrate sustainability into their core business processes see greater profitability.
