About the Guide

The long term economic, social and environmental outlook is increasingly complex and uncertain.

Failure to respond effectively to social and environmental trends can result in missed opportunities to improve decision making and risk management, enhance innovation and stakeholder engagement, and align business performance with long term value drivers.

This guide helps finance teams to navigate the complexity of a changing world by providing tools, practical examples and guidance on how to integrate sustainability into strategic planning, budgeting and forecasting.

The organizations who took part in the project to produce the guide found clear business benefits to doing this:

• Identifying sustainable opportunities and risks
• Driving investment for long term success
• Aligning performance management with long term value drivers
• Reducing cost
• Providing brand benefits
• Encouraging better employee and customer engagement
