TIME TO ACT -study
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide companies with a concrete framework for managing their sustainability risks and also for identifying new business opportunities. The outcomes of a follow-up study conducted by FIANT in collaboration with 3bility Consulting indicate that an increasing number of Finnish companies have integrated or are in the process of integrating this framework into their business and/or sustainability strategies. At the same time, still a large number of companies have not capitalized on the potential of this framework. For more information: Time_to_act_Feb2020
WORDS TO DEEDS -study
The outcomes of a study conducted by FIANT together with 3bility Consulting show that a great majority of the biggest listed companies in Finland have made at least a general level commitment to respect human rights in their business operations. At the same time, for example only 20% of the assessed 50 companies report having started to assess more systematically their human rights risks and impacts. Further efforts are needed in order to turn the commitments made by companies into concrete actions. For more information: Words_to_Deeds_Nov_2019
