Sustainable transformation is becoming an important concept for corporations around the world, considering that enterprises need to focus on creating value for shareholders while ensuring that their operations remain environmentally sustainable.
McKinsey has worked with some 70 corporations over the last year alone to help them devise sustainable strategies, manage sustainable value chains, and integrate sustainability into their everyday operations. It has devised a series of proprietary frameworks and methodologies for thinking about the issue of sustainability enterprises. McKinsey believes that sustainability is about creation of value for corporations around the world, and would like to share with you how this can be done.
