Traditionally, ‘heavy’ industries like resources, utilities, transportation and manufacturing have attracted most scrutiny. But no company, no matter what it does, can now afford to take its eye off its environmental, economic, tax and social impact.

That’s why many companies are working hand in hand with governments to tackle risks like climate change, secure the natural resources they need responsibly and promote ‘good growth’.
