In advance of the Leaders Summit to be held this week in New York, the United Nations Global Compact and Accenture have released findings of a survey of over 766 CEOs around the globe – the largest research study of top executives ever conducted on sustainability.
In response to the survey, an overwhelming majority of corporate CEOs – 93 percent – say that sustainability is critical to the future success of their companies—in spite of the recent economic downturn. CEOs also believe that, within a decade, a tipping point could be reached that fully meshes sustainability with core business – its capabilities, processes and systems, and throughout global supply chains and subsidiaries.
In addition to an online survey, the study included extensive interviews with 50 of the world’s leading CEOs.
