This worrying, yet unsurprising stat comes from this Environmental Leader story.
It’s based on a study by MIT.
Here’s a quote that will please all the consultants out there:
“Although 92 percent of respondents said that they were trying to address the issue of sustainability, most said that their companies were either not taking bold action on sustainability or were falling short on execution”.
Better leadership is clearly needed. It’s taking time for that younger, more aware generation of bosses to understand how important sustainability really is to the future of their company. The pace of change is quickening though. That’s more obvious every day.
