Creating a wholly sustainable enterprise
A practical guide to driving shareholder value through enterprise sustainability
Sustainability is rapidly becoming a critical business strategy, driven by a convergence of factors – increasing regulation, changing customer expectations, competitor and technology advances, value chain partner requirements, brand equity protection and global risk management.
Companies must undertake sustainability – driven enterprise transformation efforts in order to improve financial, environmental and social performance. Sustainability, approached the right way, can be a significant driver of enterprise value, and must generate economic value in order to evolve from an environmental specialty to a mainstream growth engine. Leading companies have begun driving improved shareholder value by broadening the definition of 'sustainable enterprise' and by executing 'green' practices where doing so delivers positive returns.
In this white paper, Creating the "Wholly Sustainable Enterprise", Chris Park, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, explores these issues in more detail.
