UN Global Compact and Accenture Release Findings of Largest CEO Study on Corporate Sustainability

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.
