Arthur D. Little: Climate change creating competitive opportunities now

New report warns that companies must rethink their business models to survive an uncertain future

A new report by Arthur D. Little urges businesses across all sectors to consider the cost of carbon when planning for long-term growth, or risk losing out to sustainability-savvy competitors and new emerging market players.  In "Ensuring survival: Business models in a low carbon world," the consultancy's Energy and Sustainability practices argue that in 2009, the carbon agenda will leave no business untouched, through multiple direct and indirect routes - from brand recognition, to the cost-base, to investors' perceptions of value.

Integrity and Innovation drive value in public policy engagement

With sustainability informing corporate and government agendas, Arthur D. Little highlights how a balanced policy engagement strategy contributes positively to the development process while also generating business value

What do carbon budgets, access to water, and supply chain labour conditions have in common?  They are all fast moving areas of public policy development, and according to a new report by Arthur D, Little, areas where businesses can create value by contributing to the public debate. Ahead of December's United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Arthur D. Little’s new report explains that as new channels open up for businesses to influence policy – locally, nationally, and globally – corporate engagement in the policy process is no easy feat.  Illustrated using case studies from clothing retailer Levi Strauss & Co. and health and hygiene products manufacturer Kimberly-Clark, the report likens sound corporate engagement to a balancing act: businesses need an approach that captures the opportunities associated with public policy engagement but also protects company integrity by working collaboratively and transparently.  [...]

With two-thirds of the world to experience water shortages by 2025, a new report warns businesses: sink or swim

The report provides several illustrations of how water affects many businesses' financial performance.

Harnessing the power of sustainable procurement

Arthur D. Little launches new white paper urging businesses to bring sustainability to the supply chain at green supply chain summit

For many corporations, much of the footprint - and associated value - relating to sustainability lies in the supply chain rather than in operations directly controlled by the corporation itself. As stakeholders become increasingly insistent that "promises made" by the CEO should be "promises delivered", business leaders will need to extract and manage increasing innovation from suppliers as well as employees to deliver on commitments to sustainable performance.
