Anyone with a passing interest in the news can see that political polarization defines U.S. politics. Recently, I have been wondering how that polarization affects the sustainability function, which focuses on some hot-button issues such as climate change, gender equality, wage disparities and even immigration.
For the second article in my series offering insights from U.S.-based CSOs on trending issues, I put this question to a number of CSOs in my network. (My first article in this series — building on the Weinreb Group’s latest research on CSOs — focused on the makeup of sustainability teams.) Interestingly, everyone who responded said political polarization has had little impact on their strategy and programs. This was the opposite of what I was expecting to hear.
