LEAD FROM THE TOP, ADVISES THE CERES EXPERTS: Corporate Sustainability Needs “Competence” On The Subject in the Board Room

October 23, 2017

The Ceres organization is sharing a great new report that you (in turn) can share inside your company – and upwards in the chain of command to the board room and C-Suite.

KEY OBSERVATION
Relatively few C-suite execs or board members embraced the concept of “corporate sustainability” in years past (the Ceres report authors have noted), but now a growing number of companies are leading their industry and sector peers in adopting strategies related to climate change…and confirming that the issues are material to their business interests and to society’s interests.

But, take note — there are numerous companies also sticking-to- business-as-usual with attention fixed on generating short-term results that prevent management and board from seeing the long- term impacts of their business on the bottom line.

And this approach clouds boards’ foresight of sustainability-related risks and inhibits boards’ ability to capitalize on sustainability-related opportunities.
