Canadian Business Sustainability Challenges 2012

“What are your greatest business sustainability challenges looking ahead to the coming year?” This is the question that the Network for Business Sustainability, a Canadian research group, put to its leadership council in its September 2011 meeting. The council members worked to identify global priorities from the Canadian perspective by identifying their own priorities; aggregating and grouping issues into categories; and ranking challenges by importance. Here, then, is the prioritized list that came out of that meeting. It should be of value both to researchers selecting focus areas as well as businesses seeking to benchmark their own priorities against broader industry sentiment. Though this list was created from a Canadian perspective, I think you will agree that the challenges listed here are broadly applicable to companies throughout the developed world.
