Imagine one of your largest customers asks you about your business’s carbon footprint or ESG strategy – and what progress has been made. Do you have an answer for them? If you answered no, the good news is that you have now identified a way to better future-proof your business and help NZ reduce its emissions. The bad news is that you are already on the backfoot. Government legislation and stakeholder expectations are changing the landscape of sustainability in NZ and businesses (whether large or small) need to be stepping up their efforts to remain resilient – and relevant – in the face of these expectations.
