Corporate Sustainability Summit.

Understanding Corporate Sustainability.

Corporate sustainability is about a company’s responsibility for society in the sense of sustainable business practices. It refers to a company’s responsibility for its impact on society.

The KENCTAD Corporate Sustainability Summit is a non financial reporting platform highlighting corporates that incorporate social, economic & environmental sustainability In their value chain.

Sustainability reporting allows private companies, public and third-sector organisations, to affirm their mission and pursued values, to acknowledge and measure their economic, environmental, social and governance performance and improvement, and, accordingly, to set goals and develop strategies in order to make the management of the organisation more sustainable and efficient, and to manage change more effectively.

Why Corporates participate.

Stakeholders are calling for a transparent disclosure of information concerning the ESG – environment, social, governance – issues within and related to business management.
 
It is thus fundamental for corporates to promptly respond to this growing call because the companies’ success will soon be more and more dependent on their capacity to generate value, to limit the use of resources and energy consumption, to avoid negative impacts – such as carbon emissions- and maximising positive effects – i.e. job creation, high quality and sustainable products and services.

Impact Measure.

Identifying, measuring and reporting social, economic and environmental impact is equally important for private companies, non profit, third sector and public organisations

It is not only a matter of a company’s better market competitiveness, but of businesses’ responsibility.
