Capitalizing on ESG, 2021 — The Business Case for Sustainability
This IDC Market Presentation highlights IDC's global sustainability research and provides a holistic view on the various topics and stakeholders that shape today's corporate sustainability discussions.
"Organizations need to address sustainability from a number of angles if they want to have a positive impact on people and the planet, in addition to achieving positive financial returns. This includes improving the sustainability of their own operations as well as helping their clients become more sustainable through the products and services that they offer, all enabled by technology," said Bjoern Stengel, global sustainability research lead, Sustainable Strategies and Technologies at IDC. "In order to address sustainability from more than a 'doing good' perspective and to drive business value, companies need to use appropriate metrics and KPIs to assess and benchmark their performance on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) topics and align their sustainability efforts with their corporate purpose to achieve better operational and financial outcomes, lower risk, and have more engaged employees and a higher brand value."
