How are SA corporates responding to sustainability challenges?

After 20 years of democracy, how is SA faring on sustainability challenges? More specifically, to what extent are SA corporates addressing social and environmental pressures – beyond business as usual? In this article for Business Day Earth, Nicola Robins assesses how local companies are beginning to integrate an appreciation of societal challenges into their strategies and capital allocations. Clarifying the distinction between corporate social investment (CSI), corporate social responsibility (CSR) and shared value (SV), she argues that if SA companies and executives can look beyond their dutiful response to CSR regulation, indices and awards, they will find valuable competitive opportunities opening in the SV space.
