Business and Sustainable Development

CEPS Task Force Report:
Business and Sustainability in the European Union
Authors: Richard Almgren & Wolfgang Hager

Sustainability requires radical change. It needs to involve all levels of government, all social forces, and every single business and citizen. This report considers the vital question: How can business become an active and constructive participant in the achievement of sustainability? The CEPS Task Force considers business as a key participant in any radical process of change, either pro-actively or as the object of regulation of its own activities and those of its customers. Our ability to harness this force will be a make-or-break condition for a true sustainability.
