A global movement is emerging driven by capital markets, governments, investors and communities. These and other stakeholders are demanding that businesses take responsibility for sustainable development and are calling for a level of transparency and accountability that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of generations to come.
Up until the recent past, businesses have not fully accounted for the true cost of doing business – but organisations that integrate sustainability into their business now can unlock value and create positive change. And they will realise benefits, as consumers and stakeholders reward those who demonstrate a social licence to operate.
In an ever-evolving sustainability landscape, BDO has been providing businesses with value-driven sustainability services for several years. To further assist our clients in starting their sustainability journey, BDO has developed a range of sustainability tools and resources that both raise awareness of how ESG concerns impact organisations and provide guidance and insights on the path to achieving – and transforming for – a sustainable future. BDO’s practical methodology is focused on value creation and material risk management, supporting our clients towards a strategic path of reporting, communication, dialogue and positioning among their stakeholders.
BDO’s Sustainability Readiness Tool (SRT) has been designed to help chart an organisation’s business against global ESG goals. It provides guidance and a maturity assessment based on responses. Ideally, the survey will be taken periodically the track an organisation’s progress on their sustainability transformation journey.
The SRT uses the UN Sustainable Development goals (SDGs) framework as the roadmap for business transformation.
