Climate change has been ranked among the top three issues of concern by CXOs with 75 per cent of those surveyed saying that companies have increased their sustainability investments over the past year, according to the Deloitte CXO Sustainability Survey 2023. 
While globally, climate change is a bigger concern than innovation, talent, supply chain and geopolitics, it is second only to economic outlook. 
In India, however, the Deloitte survey found climate change was a higher priority, ahead of ‘economic outlook’, as compared to global executives, with 57 per cent calling it a “top three priority” compared to 42 per cent of global CXOs.
