While I firmly believe that sustainability reporting has helped the private sector become more responsible and sustainable in how it operates, I also believe that the outcomes achieved by sustainability reporting have been incremental.

The growth in sustainability reporting has not accelerated the transformational changes to how business operates.

Going forward, I suggest we use sustainability reporting to bring more clarity to how companies are using their business models to transform seemingly incremental solutions to those that foster broad-based and lasting impact.
