This morning, in association with the Sustainable Business Council (SBC), we hosted 60 of New Zealand's leading CEOs and directors. At the breakfast, we launched a practical guide, Creating Sustainable Value from Good Governance for New Zealand businesses.
This co-authored guide is designed to help boards and executive management improve their understanding of, and build on their oversight of, sustainability. The guide was positively endorsed by Jane Taylor (Chair of NZ Post) and Rob Campbell (Chair of SKYCITY Entertainment). It was developed in response to the director community wanting to go further in embracing sustainability within their organisations, their communities, and the wider NZ Inc.
Embracing sustainability in an integrated way helps organisations shape strategy, manage risk and ensure long-term viability and aid in business growth. Already leading organisations are embedding sustainability in this way to navigate new challenges and to foresee and adapt to changes in order to maximise long-term value for the organisation and society.
