Sustainable Value by Chris Laszlo 2


Sustainability is rapidly becoming a mainstream business issue, primarily because environmental, social and regulatory compliance issues are having growing financial impacts on companies. Ignoring a company’s environmental footprints may increase financial risks for organizations. By continuing in this path, a company might also miss key opportunities for innovation, creativity, brand enhancement, competitive advantage and the sustainability of business itself.
