Greenbiz reports on BSR (Business for Social Responsibility) Survey:
Climate change, human rights and energy efficiency are some of the top priorities in business leaders’ sustainability strategies, according to a survey of BSR Conference 2009 attendees. And just as important, a large majority of companies expect their sustainability budgets will stay the same or increase, making sure they have the money to enact the actions they want to.
The BSR/GlobeScan State of Sustainable Business Poll 2009 (PDF) polled 274 business leaders attending the conference in San Francisco.
When asked to list “very significant” priorities over the next year, 41 percent chose climate change, 32 percent cited human rights, 29 percent said workers’ rights and 26 percent listed water availability/quality.
