A new survey from Stem reveals Fortune 1000 C-suite leaders’ perspectives on and investment plans for sustainability.
Survey findings include:
- Despite current economic uncertainties and the ongoing energy crises, a majority (57%) of leaders are increasing their investments in sustainable solutions and clean technology.
- A critical shift in the business landscape is driven by two principal factors: (40%) investor demand and (39%) the potential for new revenue sources.
- Investments in sustainability technology, specifically AI-powered software (52%) and clean energy storage solutions (60%), emerged as a priority among U.S. Fortune 1000 leaders to tackle energy costs, decrease emissions, and unlock new revenue streams.
- Only 46% of respondents are taking advantage of sustainability tax credits to help fund investments in renewable energy, highlighting the fact that many business leaders are not taking advantage of incentives available and may be leaving money on the table.
