A New Year always brings with it, a new perspective either in business or personal. In terms of business, 2019 brought a shift towards Corporate Sustainability.
Corporate Sustainability means that individuals and companies have a duty to act in the best interests of their environments and society as a whole. Lately, businesses have developed sustainability strategies where social responsibility is an integral part of their business model.
More than 80% of Millennials say that their favorite companies have identified their values, according to Forbes. Research shows that Corporate Sustainability produces transparency and can increase brand awareness, trust and an overall advantage to companies.
