Three quarters of executives in the U.S., U.K., and China surveyed by consulting firm Accenture believe that the benefits of their sustainability initiatives have exceeded expectations. In the reporting of 247 executives, 42 percent said sustainability programs had lowered costs, 41 percent said they improved brand equity, and almost 50 percent said they had raised stakeholders’ trust in their companies. Accenture has also released seven industry reports on how CEOs see sustainability as an increasingly important part of their response to their sectors’ key strategic challenges.

The Huffington Post and Triple Pundit will host CSRHub’s new Sustainability Ratings Widget. The tool, currently in beta testing, will enable users to efficiently access environmental, employee, community, and governance ratings on 5,000 publicly traded companies in 135 industries in 65 countries. CSRHub collects more than 90 sources of CSR research and information, including data from five of the eight leading SRI research firms.
