November 16, 2016 /3BL Media/ - Recognizing that a company’s CSR and sustainability impacts extend well beyond the four walls of its corporate headquarters, there are great implications for the value of a company in whether or not these impacts are managed. There are environmental and social impacts throughout the value chain of all firms—from greenhouse gas emissions to chemical use and material waste to labor conditions—and all present risks and opportunities that influence corporate value.
