The annual BSR/GlobeScan State of Sustainable Business Survey (now in its eighth year) provides insights into the world of sustainable business and aims to identify common perceptions and practices of corporate sustainability professionals. The 2016 survey offers unique insights on how companies are implementing sustainability goals, strengthening business resilience, and contributing to global development and climate change agendas. In addition to capturing the views of sustainability professionals, this year’s survey underscores how well sustainability is being incorporated into company practices and decision-making.
This year, we benefit from the perspectives of nearly 300 experienced professionals representing more than 150 companies. Collectively, this is a highly informed group of corporate professionals on the leading edge of sustainable business. Their views provide deep insight into the current state of sustainable business and future opportunities and challenges in the landscape of business and society.
