For the first time, corporate boardrooms are having to confront the environmental challenge not as a peripheral issue around public relations, but as a core issue of credibility with its customers. As trust in big business has declined, consumer willingness to alter buying behaviour to register disapproval has accelerated. As a result, boardrooms in the largest companies are having to redraw their strategic procedures regarding the environment.
