Consumption of materials and resources, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, human rights and health and safety regulations are, along with sustainability, fairness and solidarity, the key quality criteria of today’s economic activity. Customers and other stakeholders demand companies to behave and do business in a socially responsible way. An increasing number of brands and companies have begun campaigning for a better world, turning sustainability into a selling point. Sustainable management is now in demand more than ever before. In short, today’s companies not only want to be great, they also need to be ethical.
