Financial reporting plays an essential role in explaining past performance. However, it cannot provide a complete picture of business value on its own. There is growing recognition that the range of issues and opportunities affecting long-term business value is much broader than what is reflected in a set of current year financial measures.

Increasingly, there is a 'hard' economic and commercial edge to the social and environmental issues faced by all organisations and governments.  Sustainability is moving from being primarily about corporate responsibility to a process that can create long-term economic value.

These developments are reshaping business opportunities and risks and have the potential to significantly impact financial performance and long-term business success. Our sustainability professionals work with organisations to respond to environmental and social issues in order to manage risk, create value and achieve a competitive advantage.
