Guide for a more Sustainable Business


Today, stakeholders at all levels and sectors are actively engaged in defining and aligning on what should be the success measures of companies: from new laws and benchmarks to more pronounced consumer and employee demands, as well as investor expectations.

Sustainability, defined by the ESG framework, is now a concern for managers who are required to do much more than just generate profit.
