We began working with early sustainability leaders in the 1980s. At that time, traditional environmental, health, and safety issues began to take on strategic importance that caused board members carefully to focus on their governance systems. In the 1990s, the nexus of our work was in Europe where companies were ahead of their U.S. counterparts in external sustainability reporting and in considering business risks and opportunities associated with their products and services.
