Corporate action on sustainability has a strong business case. UNGC has outlined four key drivers:
- Consumer Preferences: A growing trend of “ethical consumerism” pushes companies to demonstrate contributions to global goals.
- Employee Demands/Motivations: Employees and workers are calling for better working conditions and wages. Those working for sustainability leaders feel a “pride of association.”
- Requirements from Business Partners: More companies are scrutinizing their supply chains to ensure adherence to principles of sustainability, reducing the risk of poor performance, social harm, and environmental harm by business partners.
- Management Education: Business school curricula incorporating the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) – an initiative of the United Nations and business schools – are creating a new generation of managers concerned about sustainability.
