Sustainability and Compliance Trends
Five trends shaping the future
Sustainability and Compliance trends are constantly moving forward. The focus is increasingly on finding new and innovative ways to address sustainability challenges. Compliance issues continue to arise, and stakeholders are becoming more vocal in their demands and requirements.
A Deloitte publication from the Nordic region focuses on 5 trends that are applicable to our environment in New Zealand:
- Measuring the socio-economic impacts of business;
- Creating value through responsible procurement;
- Partnerships with Humanitarian Civil Society organisations;
- Corruption; and
- Human rights challenges and risks regarding their supply chain.
The report provides concrete steps to understanding and addressing these trends within a business; along with thought-provoking analogous discussion of CSR issues in Finland and Iceland post the GFC.
