ESG and Sustainability

Sustainability issues are having an increasingly dramatic impact on businesses, investors, consumers, the workforce and governments. Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruption, it has also provided momentum and opportunity to rethink and reconfigure for resilience.

Sustainable impact made real

What was once not long ago considered "nice to have" is nowadays crucial to a company's long-term economic success: Sustainability plays a central role in how business is conducted. The focus lies on how a company's business impacts the environment and society, and how this shapes its business model. At the end of the day, sustainability is tantamount to a company's "right to play".

Customers, investors and society in general have become interested in more than just the hard financial figures. They also demand information that goes beyond a company's financial report. They expect companies to take responsibility by identifying the ecological and social impact of their business models and steering it through sustainable development.

As more effects of climate change are showing, it is natural to hesitate as to which measures to take against it. But those who take brave actions also reap opportunities: First, with the recycling approach putting pressure on the “take, make, waste” direct economic model, the circular economy approach began to grab attention. An important prong of the circular economy is renewable energy, which is incentivised.

For a more sustainable environment, energy saving and waste management are essential in today’s world where everyone has an eye on natural resources. Considering the limited resources, the direct economy model, which creates burdens related to resource use, is more and more often accepted to be unsustainable. So, it is imperative that, in a competitive market, leaders include ESG-driven growth, change and value creation on their agendas.

Stakeholders are more socially aware than ever about ecological balance, environmental sustainability and social justice. If leaders want to maintain their companies' success, they have to quickly respond to these stakeholder expectations.

PwC aims to support organisations in planning, supplying, financing and measuring the extensive impact of their products and services with sustainability services. Companies need to achieve a resilient, agile and sustainable structure if they want to prevail.
