With the likes of climate change, plastic pollution, and modern slavery grabbing the headlines, it's not enough just to discuss responsible business any more; there needs to be action. The Responsible Business special report, published in The Times covers some of the sectors and companies taking on the challenge. It explores why corporate purpose must be at the centre of commercial strategy, why social enterprises need an iron-clad business plan to survive, and what B2B brands can be learning from conscious consumers. It covers how brands can measure their social impact in a time when an accusation of “greenwashing” can be fatal. Also featured are an infographic on the rise of ESG investment and eight cost-effective ways businesses can reduce their carbon footprint.
