Global study finds 94% of people believe society has not made enough progress on sustainability and social efforts. People around the world are demanding more progress on sustainability and social efforts and are looking to businesses to step up, according to a new study by Oracle and Pamela Rucker, CIO Advisor, Instructor for Harvard Professional Development. By @Oracle.
The “No Planet B” study surveyed more than 11,000 consumers and business leaders across 15 countries and found that people are fed up with the lack of progress society is making towards sustainability and social initiatives, want businesses to turn talk into action, and believe technology can help businesses succeed where people have failed.
The study main points:
- People want businesses to step up sustainability and social efforts
- Human bias and operational challenges are holding businesses back
- People will cut ties with businesses that don’t take action on sustainability and social initiatives
