We summarize the highly anticipated results from Anthesis Group’s Annual Emerging Trends Survey
What is the Anthesis Annual Emerging Trends Survey?
Anthesis conducted this survey to proactively track business perspectives on sustainability trends and topics. We asked survey respondents for their perceptions about key sustainability trends and topics that are emerging or changing, and impacting organizations globally. Understanding and prioritizing the topics that matter most to the market will enable us to more fully understand business priorities and challenges, and provide these insights back to our clients.
This is the first Emerging Trends survey Anthesis have conducted, with yearly surveys planned hereafter.
Who took part in the survey?
Our survey had 240 respondents from 15 different industries, with many holding Director or Managerial roles. Our audience is global, too, with respondents predominantly from Americas and the United Kingdom.
How can I view the results?
