Why Sustainability Matters

The importance of sustainability is increasing across all industrial sectors. There are a number of trends that are driving industries to establish more sustainable organizations, ranging from resource scarcity and expanding regulation, to increased investor and consumer focus on sustinability.

The impact of these trends will vary, but they are ultimately unavoidable and relevant for all business leaders. For the study From Green to Sustainable, Oliver Wyman conducted interviews with a number of firms that are pushing the agenda to understand how they have used sustainability to improve their bottom line.
