Abstract: Globalization and economic progress have brought many benefits to businesses, such as worldwide trade and bigger customer bases. Yet at the same time, this has increased competition and decreased the availability of important raw materials and natural resources, such as oil or water. Both in the literature and in business, many agree that no company can function isolated from its environment in the long-run. Additionally, technological advances and changes in communication have led to increased public awareness about social and environmental topics and call for more transparency of business activities. Thus, sustainability has become a pivotal factor for long-lasting success.
