The full report is set to be release in January 2011. Check here for details. Early results include finding:
- Forty-seven percent of those who are substantially outperforming their peers have developed a business case for sustainability.
- Among lower performing companies, only thirty percent have developed a business case for sustainability.
- Fifty percent of North American companies have yet to try to develop a business case for sustainability efforts, compared to thirty percent in the Asia-Pacific region.
All of which leaves open questions. What's holding other companies back?
A clear business case needs more than the profit numbers. For effective leading sustainability change its about managing the visible objective measured change as well as viewpoints, values and cultural world-views that sit beneath this - the invisible drivers. In other words, a sustainability case that is right for the organisation.
