These annual reports describe the outcome of a survey conducted by the Business Council for Sustainable Development in Hungary. They provide information about the opinions, experiences and expectations of respondents about the current situation of and trends in sustainable development in Hungary and give details about their performance and targets.
The survey is always based on the ’Recommendations for Business leaders: The Complex Interpretation of corporate Sustainability’.
Survey was conducted using an electronic questionnaire and was analysed and summarized by an independent consultant and the report was then edited based on this summary by the Working Group and staff of BCSDH.
The survey is neither statistically valid nor representative but it highlights the opinions of company leaders who are shaping approaches to local sustainability through their commitment and action.
