「永續性」的單詞，過去僅意味著只護地球環境。可是現在，變成意味有關環境、社會、管治 (ESG) ，企業的非財務性價值和行動規範的言詞。企業中，儘管有些努力從各個方面改善其ESG績效，不過，也有的始終只是口頭上說。同時，市民和政府，行政機關，媒體等協作，觀察企業的言行，尋求具體的行動的情況也增加了。由於社會差距和貪污，避稅，對氣候變動的活動不足等問題社會受到關注，企業方面也必須有恰當的行動。一些公司CEO不願參與永續性問題，不過，事實恰恰相反，解決這個問題是可以戰勝企業間競爭的要素。
Sustainability used to be just about saving the planet. Today it has morphed into an umbrella term for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
While some companies are making concerted efforts to improve their ESG performance across many areas, others are simply paying lip service to the concept of sustainable profits.
Momentum is on the side of the sustainability movement. Citizens, governments, regulators, and the media are turning the spotlight on corporations and demanding action. Social inequality, corruption, tax avoidance, and a lack of action on climate change are all issues that companies must now address head-on, in full public view.
The reluctance of many CEOs to fully engage with sustainability can be attributed to the age-old view that it will hurt profits. However, the evidence in this report suggests the opposite. Companies that embrace all three elements of sustainability will outperform their peers. CEOs that are too slow to improve their company's approach to sustainability will see an exodus of customers and a drop in profits far sooner than they ever imagined.
