Many reasons have been discovered in leading the motivations for business organizations in responding to societal concerns including environmental matters. Specifically, economic and market pressures, environmental crises and high population growth rates may justify engagement in voluntary approaches. Environmental reporting practices have emerged among economic players as a result of various influencing factors including stakeholders' benefit, pressures from various interest groups, political and cultural conditions. Voluntary environmental disclosure offers economic benefits such as being able to develop stronger business relationships with suppliers, attracting ethical investors and even penetrating new markets due to improved environmental performance. Even more fundamental is the fact that global capitalism creates pressures and tendencies for corporations to act and adopt strategic environmental practices. Shareholder Activism Watchdog Group was chosen as a context of study as it serves as one avenue of market discipline to encourage good governance amongst public listed companies with the objective of raising shareholder value over time. It had made its presence felt and created impact as a voice for the minority shareholders as it continued to step up efforts in bringing about awareness to stakeholders, in particular minority shareholders regarding their rights and responsibilities. The Three Responsibilities commitment helps SAWG to boost its services to the market with greater confidence in enhancing its endeavor to be self-sustainable through its private mandate in the longer term. A comprehensive Sustainability Policy will profoundly influence how the company plan, manage and support the three responsibilities into all of its business activities. The PDCA cycle unveiled numerous opportunities to improve SAWG processes at a low cost. Continuous improvement put SAWG on the right track by helping the company to identify new areas of improvement. The Sustainability Value Proposition was able to demonstrate potential cost savings as a result of the company utilizing fewer natural resources.
