Evolution of corporate sustainability practices: perspectives from the UK, US and Canada

Business sustainability is about ensuring that organisations implement strategies that contribute to long-term success. Organisations that act in a sustainable manner not only help maintain the well-being of the planet and people, they also create businesses that will survive and thrive in the long run.

To gain a sense of the state of sustainability in the UK and North America, CIMA, the AICPA and CICA recently surveyed over 2000 organisational leaders from their respective memberships, and interviewed sustainability executives from leading organisations to examine key characteristics of business sustainability, and the level of finance function involvement in corporate sustainability initiatives.

The finance function can add a lot of value in terms of making sure that information related to sustainability – particularly information that enters the public domain – is produced and managed with the necessary level of rigor.
