Why we must engineer a more sustainable future.
90% of executives think sustainability is important, only 60% of companies have an articulated sustainability strategy.
The ill addressed issue of our time
It is abundantly clear that the need to become more sustainable as a planet is not an issue for the future, but an ill addressed issue of the present. There is also a growing expectation for firms to address this issue within their organisation.
Furthermore, the methodology for the evaluation and measurement of sustainable performance, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), is becoming increasingly prevalent and can even affect publicly traded businesses’ share prices and the investment appeal of firms looking to raise capital.
Sustainability can be articulated as “providing for the present needs without compromising the needs of the future generations to meet theirs.” As per Talal Rafi, speaking for Forbes, whilst 90% of executives think sustainability is important, only 60% of companies have an articulated sustainability strategy.
