Four in five manufacturers say they have taken environmentally responsible action

83% of manufacturing businesses have taken some form of action on environmental sustainability and three quarters (73%) of companies, in research conducted by Barclays, say that the environmentally responsible actions they have taken bring them at least one commercial benefit.

However, their report shows that actions on environmental sustainability are still ranked below some other considerations. Rather than a traditional CSR topic, sustainability should be viewed as a key topic to be discussed in the boardroom, with a mission to improve financial and reputational outcomes.
