Demands on companies are constantly increasing. Nowadays, stakeholders expect much more than just economic success. Companies cannot allow themselves to gear their business towards economic considerations alone – taking account of economic and social impacts in equal measure is imperative. This is the only way the confidence of customers, investors, politics, employees, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the public can be harnessed along with the 'licence to operate' that the company needs to implement its objectives and interests. In turn, confidence and acceptance contribute to building the reputation and thereby determine sustainability.
In light of this, sustainability has become a strategically significant approach and an integral element in company policy. It sets the right course for success or failure of a company. The strategic and cultural rooting of sustainability is a key success factor for companies, as well as measurability and transparency of measures and an open and honest dialogue with stakeholders.
