How do you create a sustainability strategy?

The short answer: don't greenwash. The better answer: be transparent about impacts, demonstrate how you are managing material topics, engage with stakeholders and ensure due diligence.

These standards drive the international Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and should inspire any sustainability strategy.
