Letter from the CEO

Dear ViewPoint member,

Welcome to the fourteenth edition of the ViewPoint Bulletin with a focus on Sustainable Business Performance. We are pleased to share with you the results from our third Viewpoint Espresso survey this year where we find out how companies are dealing with the ISO 2015 requirements; the effect of clause 9.2 in internal audit, and, valuable lessons and benefits from sharing experiences.

While global economies are forever changing, business models must reinvent to be robust, and transform to better meet the needs of today and tomorrow. New approaches to measure and value the social and environmental impacts of business activities to connect the dots between business, social and environmental performance are vital. This excerpt from DNV GL’s latest position paper elaborates on what DNV GL means are the drivers of change towards tomorrow’s value practice.

In this edition, we have included some recommended external videos and articles that we hope you might find interesting and inspiring. These consist of best-selling author on leadership, Bill George who explains the importance of alignment around mission and values of the company; Charlene Li on how to construct a solid social media path; and Gold Fever, Simon Sinek's formula of having a successful and inspiring business based on a dream and purpose.

As always, please visit our community portal where previous materials are readily available. I welcome your feedback and thoughts.

Happy reading!

Kind Regards,

Luca Crisciotti
CEO, DNV GL - Business Assurance
