There has never been a more crucial time for organizations to capitalize on the opportunities that can be gained through sustainability. Despite setbacks on many fronts, from slow regulatory progress through to economic volatility, we’re seeing the world’s best-run companies proactively transforming their businesses around the sustainability imperative.
To help organizations capitalize on the opportunities this ebook drills down into what it means to run a sustainable organization—but specifically through the lens of each major executive role. It starts at the top, considering the issues for a chief executive officer trying to set the agenda on sustainability. It then maps out how sustainability impacts each other major role – from the chief strategy officer through to the chief financial officer – and what they need to bring to the table in return.
Each chapter highlights what leading executives are now doing to incorporate sustainability into how they think, manage and lead whilst setting out pragmatic approaches to capitalizing on the opportunities presented by sustainability.
The findings and lessons within this e-book are drawn from the highlights from “The Sustainable Organization: Lessons From Leaders Series”, an 18-month long research program. The core inputs include:
First and foremost, well over 60 in-depth interviews with leading C-suite executives and experts, spanning a range of industries and geographies globally;
Accenture’s sustainability-related research, journal articles, events, and educational materials. Much of this has been developed in collaboration with our network of partners;
Direct input from Accenture’s own executive leadership;
Finally, input and examples from across our Strategy & Sustainability consulting group, based on our wide-ranging work with clients globally.
