In 2016, the UN Global Compact-Accenture Strategy CEO Study revealed that 80% of CEOs believe that demonstrating a commitment to sustainability and societal purpose is a differentiator in their industry.
For several years, a majority of investors have recognized that sustainability is a major factor in ensuring long-term returns. Ernst & Young upholds that sustainability reporting is “a best practice employed by companies worldwide”, as it can help improve practices already in place.
