Infographic: Why business leaders are more environmentally conscious after the pandemic

13th July 2020

A survey commissioned by Haven Power has found that corporate business leaders are more environmentally aware than before the coronavirus pandemic.

We wanted to understand the priorities that are driving businesses forward as the UK emerges from the lockdown imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Our research shows that while the need for business stability came out on top, respondents also called out the importance of both bolder decision-making and increased flexibility, as well as finding new ways of working.

70% of business leaders highlighted their growing environmental awareness in the wake of COVID-19, but also revealed that sustainability must compete with costs, shareholder interests and business stability.

The climate crisis is perhaps the greatest challenge on the horizon. COVID-19 has presented an opportunity for business leaders to reflect on their priorities. We’ve created this infographic to help communicate the results of our survey.

A brave new world

As we emerge from lockdown and edge back to a more normal way of life, it’s important that we prepare for a more sustainable future. To prevent a return to the status quo, business leaders must be prepared to make braver decisions.

We’ve published the full findings from our research into business leaders’ attitudes to change, bravery and sustainability in an exclusive whitepaper.
