What is Sustainability Management?
Sustainability is one of the prime challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. All organizations, from businesses to governments, seek to generate value with limited resources.
Sustainability is not a concept it is a way of life and it embraces a holistic approach. Economic growth, the environment and social inclusion are equally important dimensions in our societies and businesses. Sustainability Management is the integration of those dimensions into the various business fields and strategies. Long-term profitability is assured through an effective application of Sustainability Management.
Sustainability has often been defined as how biological systems endure, are productive and remain diverse. Today, it refers to the need to develop sustainable models necessary for both humanity and planet Earth.
Businesses today employ a three-part sustainability strategy:
- Preserve the environment and conserve natural resources.
- Build social equity, support employee well-being and promote fair trade.
- Maximize long-term profitability and promote growth.
This holistic view of doing business places equal emphasis on the planet, people and profit. You’ll often see the concept referred to as the triple bottom line.
