@Nemos, this refers to the ability of organizations to trace its sustainability efforts to some bottom line measurement (increased revenues, lowered cost, decreased risk, etc.)

When I saw the Poll results(which clearly point out that Majority of the Respondents are straight away saying -NO;I realized what a Poor Job Sustainability Gurus,etc have done about promoting this concept.

The Right and Best way would have been in terms of Lower Cost of Doing Business;instead of the current Wishy-Washy Nonsense that these Gurus(& Bueracrats as well) parade constantly.

Sure,we need Action on this Front and it has to come from the People involved in the entire Supply-Chain (from Top to Bottom) but unless you are prepared to accept that it should lead to Lowered Costs;you won't see much Traction in these current Hard-pressed Financial Times today.

Every Single Dollar matters-That a CFO can definitely Clear in his Budgets.
