According to the United Nations Global Compact, chief executives are finding it progressively harder to make the case for substantial action on sustainability. They are increasingly looking toward governments for active policy leadership.

The conclusions come from a study, carried out by Accenture, of more than 1,000 CEOs worldwide. It suggested that the progress of recent years, with a growing base of businesses making significant commitments to action, may have "reached a plateau".

Peter Lacy, the Managing Director of Accenture’s Strategy Practice & Sustainability Services, suggested that CEOs now believe that radical structural change to markets and systems will be required to enable businesses to provide further leadership for a sustainable economy.
