The importance of sustainability, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and simply being a good corporate citizen, has never been stronger in today’s modern world.
Recent surveys and reports from leading business researchers and advisory firms confirm the important role that green initiatives play in attracting consumers, investors and even new employees. Today, people expect more than a simple “please do not print” message at the end of emails from organisations they work for and do business with.
Organisations are now linking top executive pay to corporate sustainability targets. Shareholders are demanding that the companies they invest in think about more than just the bottom line. As a result, environmental sustainability has become an area where boards and executive teams are expected to provide leadership.
Here, we explore how board software applications, aka board portals, have eliminated the use of millions of pages of paper across organisations of all sizes worldwide. We also take a look at how extending these applications beyond the board to other meetings is a responsible and cost-effective undertaking, one that fits squarely in line with your organisation’s other sustainability programs, while positively impacting the organisation’s bottom line.
