The authors of the January 2015 sustainability research report by MIT Sloan Management Review, The Boston Consulting Group and the United Nations Global Compact share findings and insights from their research into sustainability practices.
In January 2015, co-authors David Kiron and Knut Haanaes presented the findings from the recent global sustainability study, “Joining Forces: Collaboration and Leadership for Sustainability.” The joint study found that 90% of respondents agreed that businesses need to collaborate to address sustainability challenges. And 61% of executives whose companies participated in sustainability-related partnerships view these collaborations as quite or very successful.
In the webinar, Kiron and Haanaes discussed the benefits of collaborating for sustainability, and answered viewer questions on the challenges of establishing such collaborations. They presented their findings on what makes for successful collaborations, which include shared language, due diligence and the right entrance and exit strategies.
