Evolving Beyond the License to Operate Video | DuPont Safety and Sustainability Forum 2013

As such, companies are missing an opportunity to leverage sustainability to deliver greater efficiency, enhance competitive advantage and spark innovation – which are all drivers of profitability.

This panel highlights why reputation remains a key focus of sustainability efforts, as well as the means through which companies can evolve toward an operating model in which sustainability efforts deliver shared value for shareholders and stakeholders alike.
