The environment and sustainability are challenging and complex areas and increasingly a C-Suite and boardroom issue. As Governments, NGOs and the public become more aware and demanding on businesses and their impact, companies have had to develop strategies to respond to these demands and become increasingly mindful of their legacy. At the same time market access, product liability and rules around products are evolving too.
Currently the primary purpose of the Environment and Compliance programme is to help members understand, influence and shape the regulations that they live with and we don’t anticipate this changing. Managing Brexit risks, environmental laws, product compliance, energy, supply chain transparency, trade rules and producer responsibility are growing issues, but we want to understand how members want us to approach the broader sustainability agenda practices in their corporate strategy.
The survey looks at what issues techUK members feel the programme should focus on, if techUK is capturing the sustainability and environmental issues the sector faces and how members adopt more sustainable policies into their corporate strategy. The survey also asks what emerging compliance issues are under-represented in the programme working groups and the approach to overarching issues like integrating the UN Sustainable Development Goals, climate change, ethical investment as well as business and human rights.
