Our annual State of Sustainable Business Survey, conducted with BSR, again provides important insights into the priorities, perceptions and challenges being faced by businesses and the sustainability professionals who work within them. The infographic below highlights just a few of the key findings from this year’s survey. We see that transparency is both a significant challenge for business, but also a highly important tool in helping to improve continuing low levels of public trust in business. This year we also point the spotlight on the Chief Sustainability Officer role within businesses. While over half of respondents to the survey do not have a CSO in place in their company, they might take inspiration from those that do, where over three-quarters say the CSO is having a positive impact on the company’s sustainability performance.
The full report provides more detail on all the findings of the survey.
