Sustainability demands action from your company. Here's our guide to key terms.

Around the world and in every industry, customers, investors, regulators and a wide range of other stakeholders are demanding that companies increase their commitment to sustainability.

Today, having a sustainability strategy, sustainable policies and evidence of sustainable actions can be essential prerequisites to attracting investment.

Addressing sustainability is complex. Despite its centre stage role in the news agenda, there remain low levels of sustainability knowledge, skills and evidence of application to support companies’ transition and reach net zero targets.

How to speak about sustainability

One of the first steps necessary in developing a response lies in understanding sustainability’s lexicon. The sector may be relatively new, but it’s already developed its own common language. Understanding sustainability’s language gives you entry into the conversation. To help you, we’ve created a sustainability glossary.

From the boardroom to business networking and beyond, using the right words and phrases – and understanding others when they use them– can give greater confidence and credibility to you and your business. Conversely, not being able to talk the talk can quickly expose knowledge gaps. That could impact reputation for you and your company’s brand.
