The year’s focus was on “Integrating strategic sustainability into business decision-making”. True integration of sustainability means that material issues are effectively addressed within business functions and seen as critical to the company’s viability. Integration enables companies to understand internally and — where relevant — communicate externally how they create value and to better manage performance on critical issues. The program brought together 32 participants, from WBCSD member companies, over a nine-month period. They wrote five reports based on literature reviews, research and interviews:

  1. Degrees of change: Embedding climate change risks in business decision-making through enterprise risk management
  2. A guide to dilemma resolution at the board-level
  3. Challenges and opportunities: Applying the Natural Capital Protocol scope stage
  4. Social Capital - A missed opportunity. A review of how companies can use the Social Capital Protocol to inform the decision to open a new site.
  5. Creating stakeholder value through energy efficiency collaborations in cities

This document only provides a summary of the five reports. The full reports are available from WBCSD. To learn more, please contact Suzanne Feinmann-
