A total capital approach for developing a sustainability agenda

September 2020

Charlie Johnson, Christine Delivanis

The gap between what markets value and what society values is closing. Financial markets and investors are increasingly focused on the fact that risks and opportunities linked to sustainability are tangible and can have a significant impact on business performance.

In this Commentary Charlie Johnson, Christine Delivanis, and Daniel Dias, founder of Route2, describe how by better understanding the relationship between stakeholder and shareholder value in the context of what a company does, leaders can shape a more robust sustainability agenda. Once the agenda is progressed via an appropriate approach for institutional change, the company is then well on the path of simultaneous growth of both shareholder and stakeholder value.
