Rio+20: Seven out of Ten CEOs would Take Action on Global Sustainability Challenges - New Video Available

Seven out of ten CEOs in a global PwC business poll say they would take more ambitious action on issues related to the Millennium Development Goals including issues of energy, water and sustainable development if progress is made at Rio+20. Just under half have made pledges so far.

With less than a month to go to the landmark Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, PwC examined global threats and challenges to business in driving sustainable development including water, food security, resource scarcity, climate change, equality and social inclusion and affordable energy. The poll reflects that as issues of energy affordability, water scarcity and climate change move to become strategic business concerns, the gap between sustained and sustainable development could be closed. Available video includes an edited package and general views of PwC Headquarters in London.
