One hundred thought leaders across a variety of business sectors and from civil society and governmental institutions volunteered their time for in-depth telephone interviews on their attitudes towards sustainability standards. Published in March 2011, their responses clearly show:
- Social and environmental standards are becoming a widely used tool to implement corporate social and environmental responsibility.
- Credibility criteria impact highly on the awareness and use of standards systems.
- Operational improvements are important benefits from the use of standards systems.
- Standards systems should strive to build a coherent landscape.
We developed the concept of the study, analyzed the results and drafted the final report.
