Business sustainability has advanced from greenwashing and branding
to being a business imperative. Stakeholders, including
shareholders, demand, regulators require, and companies now need to
report their sustainability performance. No longer is this a choice
for businesses. A decade ago, fewer than 50 companies released
sustainability reports, and now more 8,000 global public companies
disclose sustainability performance information on some or all five
economic, governance, social, ethical, and environmental (EGSEE)
dimensions of sustainability performance, and this trend is
expected to continue. Indeed, more than 6,000 European public
companies would be required to disclose their environmental,
social, governance and diversity information for their 2017
reporting year. However, the proper determination of sustainability
performance, accurate and reliable reporting and independent
assurance of sustainability information remain major challenges for
organizations of all types and sizes. Through reading this book,
you will: Identify sustainability strategies to create innovation
in new products, services, energy-efficiency, environmental
facilities and green initiatives. Understand the role and
responsibilities of all participants in the corporate reporting
process, including directors, officers, internal auditors, external
auditors, legal counsel, and investors. See ways to improve public
trust, investor confidence, business reputation, employee
satisfaction, corporate culture, social responsibility and
environmental performance. Learn all five economic, governance,
social, ethical and environmental (EGSEE) dimensions of
sustainability performance separately and their integrated and
interactive effects on achieving the goal of creating sustainable
value for all stakeholders, including shareholders. Learn how to
adopt best practices in sustainability development and performance,
and deliver effective integrated sustainability reporting and
