Embedding sustainability across an organisation requires commitment and innovation. It is more than changing processes, products and services, partnerships or governance. An organization that has authentically embedded sustainability into their corporate strategy needs to engage all levels and areas of the company including senior management and the Board of Directors, as well as external stakeholders. Doing so creates value for the organization and its stakeholders.
The Co-operators (Canada) developed their first sustainability strategy just over a decade ago and in 2015, formally began to integrate and embed sustainability in their corporate strategy. Their journey to embed sustainability organisation-wide continues today and in this webinar, Barbara Turley-McIntyre, Vice-President, Sustainability and Citizenship, and Andrew Yorke, Vice-President, Corporate Finance Services, explore the business impact of those efforts. They discuss how the relationship between the financial and non-financial elements of the organisation has evolved, creating economic, social and environmental value for the organisation.
