The ESG/SDG barometer, created in July 2022 by the Smart kolektiv, presents a short guide intended for companies thinking about their path to sustainability. It was created on the basis of a comparative analysis of trends in the world and a survey of the attitudes of leading companies operating in Serbia. This short but substantive document is intended primarily for decision-makers in companies, as a kind of guide through the dynamic environment impacted by a global wave of sustainability. In addition to clear indicators that companies should pay attention to, the publication also offers a set of recommendations intended for other partners and stakeholders.
The publication contains a cross-section of 6 key trends to pay a specific attention to: growing legal obligations, more available financing for sustainable practices, increasing expectations regarding transparency, increasing demand for sustainability professionals, improvements in the field of environmental protection as a main focus of the biggest number of companies and following the focus on environment, a sharp turn towards “S“.
In addition, the publication contains some of the observations and recommendations intended for decision-makers from all sectors, among which are: building a “business case”, the need for more efficient mechanisms of intersectoral cooperation, a strategy for the development of responsible and sustainable business, consistent implementation of adopted laws and development of services offered by civil society organizations.
