Global Sustainability Transformation Survey Report 2023: Four keys to successful sustainability transformation

Thought Leadership Team

Oxford Economics

In challenging times, are businesses continuing their sustainability transformation journey or are they falling back on legacy practices? To find out, Oxford Economics and Fujitsu surveyed 1,800 C-suite and senior executives and conducted 22 in-depth interviews, uncovering perspectives from industries and countries around the world on the challenges, triumphs, and realities of transforming to a more sustainable business.

The research and analysis identifies four essential success factors followed by a small minority of organizations who lead this sustainability transformation. This elite cohort see sustainability transformation as a business opportunity, establish a purpose around sustainability initiatives driving empathy with customers and employees, integrate sustainability into the very core of what they do, and finally, incorporate digital technology at the centre of their transformation strategy. As a result, they are further ahead in implementing an integrated sustainability strategy across their business and are seeing tangible results. The report, published by Fujitsu in June 2023, reveals the progress companies are making as they move from target setting to the far more difficult stage of implementing programmes and achieving positive results.

To bee or not to bee—a small insect’s place in the world economy

In recent years, UK government figures have pointed towards a long-term decline in bee populations, and perhaps more worryingly, a study in the US found a decline in the honey yield per colony due to environmental degradation. Given this concerning evidence, World Bee Day was established by the UN General Assembly in 2017 to highlight the important role bees and other pollinators play in global food production, and how vital it is that we support them.

Eurozone: Why food prices are a channel for more frequent supply shocks

More frequent adverse supply shocks mean eurozone inflation is likely to be more volatile and possibly higher on average in the future. Food prices are a key channel through which these global shocks will be transmitted, according to our analysis. We provide a quantitative assessment of the impact of a wide range of supply shocks on eurozone inflation.
