Sustainability Management

Supporting sustainability leaders to transform companies and build long-term value

The operating environment for business is radically different than it was a decade ago, and it’s evolving every day.

Businesses must navigate the heightened expectations from investors, regulators, customers, employees, and other stakeholders; increasing geopolitical volatility and fragmentation; challenges of the accelerating energy transition; climate disruption; and emerging AI and other disruptive technologies.

All of this has massive implications for how we can achieve a more just and sustainable world and demonstrates the value of strategic resilience as businesses adapt to this new reality.

The companies that will remain competitive are embracing sustainability. Treating sustainability as a tack-on is no longer sufficient: Today’s leading companies understand the imperative to manage a holistic company renewal effort across the entire enterprise.

A strong sustainability strategy helps businesses to see around the corner, to maximize value creation opportunities, minimize financial risk, understand stakeholder expectations, and address the ethical imperative to avoid harm to people, the environment, and livelihoods.

At the center of all of this is the Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO)—the indispensable linchpin responsible for steering a company to success while aligning with long-term business strategy. The CSO will be expected to collaborate with other experts in teams like Finance, Risk, Audit, Legal, and Corporate Affairs to design a robust governance approach across the entire business. The CSO will also dialogue with external stakeholders and engage with the Board of Directors. With the right focus on material risks, opportunities, and impact, combined with oversight at the highest levels, they will help guide the company to a more resilient, sustainable future.


74 percent of employees would consider leaving their company if it wasn’t meeting their sustainability expectations.


90 percent of Gen X consumers are willing to spend 10 percent or more for sustainable products.


91 percent of banks monitor ESG, along with 24 global credit rating agencies, 71 percent of fixed-income investors, and over 90 percent of insurers.
