Golin explored how companies can combine their diversity efforts and sustainability goals in their approach to environmental injustice in America.
Two surveys were conducted from May 23 – June 10, 2022 of 1,537 U.S. adults and 150 U.S. C-suite executives.
Key findings include:
— 90% of executives said that it’s important for corporations to address environmental injustice, but 49% don’t believe it would lead to tangible outcomes for minorities and low-income communities.
— 85% of Americans said environmental justice is a critical issue.
1.) One-third of Americans were satisfied with the efforts made by companies and C-suite leaders.
— Nearly half of consumers said it’s a CEO’s duty to address environmental justice.
