Understanding top sustainability pain points for UK organizations
UK Sustainability Report
What’s in this report from Rimm Sustainability:
New data published by Rimm Sustainability reveals that more than a third of UK SMEs (36%) find it challenging to understand what they should be reporting on when it comes to sustainability. Other top pain points include verifying data (35%), the high price points for most sustainability services (34%), complex regulations and standards (32%) and collecting the data itself (32%).
The report, “Leading the Charge on Sustainability: Moving from Awareness to Action” highlights the views of 500 C-suite executives from small and midsized businesses from a range of industries across the UK and the challenges they face. One key hurdle continues to be sustainability reporting.
Ravi Chidambaram, CEO of Rimm Sustainability, says: “Despite the increasing awareness of the value that sustainability can bring to a business and all of its stakeholders, SMEs in the UK continue to find themselves caught in a web of challenges. Unlike their larger and more established counterparts, the bottlenecks faced by SMEs stem from limited financial resources as well as the lack of knowledge and expertise.”
