Testimonials about the ICAEW's Business Sustainability Programme.
"Anglo American plc made a firm commitment to sustainable development in 2000. Today, sustainable development is embedded in our policies, strategies and everyday practices.
Our business involves the depletion of non-renewable natural resources and the social and environmental footprint of our operations is often significant; sustainable development concepts are therefore central to our long-term licence to operate.
As a result, we seek to assess the economic, social and environmental risks and benefits of all our major decisions.
We are delighted to have been involved in the development of the ICAEW's Business Sustainability Programme which clearly demonstrates the business case for sustainability and provides a practical and engaging guide to designing, implementing, measuring performance and reporting on Corporate Responsibility strategies.
We feel that this programme will be welcomed enthusiastically by many organisations for its relevance and ease of access and believe that it will contribute to raising awareness with a group of professionals not previously exposed to SD thinking and should encourage them to take this further as this is a field which is moving very quickly."
