Deep Green

Thought Leadership Team

Oxford Economics

Oxford Economics and Cognizant surveyed 3000 C-suite and senior executives, as well as conducting 24 in-depth interviews, exploring what environmental sustainability actions organisations are taking now or plan to take in the near future, as well as the challenges holding them back from meeting their goals.

Our research and analysis, spanning industries and countries across the globe, focused on senior executives involved in sustainability initiatives at some of the largest organisations (80% coming from 1$ billion turnover or more p/a), revealing what needs to happen—at a strategy, technology, and leadership level—to ensure businesses are ready to expand their sustainability efforts across their entire ecosystems. The research, written up by Cognizant in a report in May 2023, highlights five key recommendations for businesses that can help them emerge not only as leaders in their markets but as beacons for how to be a sustainable business—a deeply green business—to meet the needs of our changing world.
