Developing a detailed sustainability vision for long-term strategic plan, which creates lasting value, whilst also building public trust is a common challenge for all sectors of organisations.
Success on sustainability will require comprehensive strategies that cascade to all levels of the business - from the board room, to employees, to suppliers, to consumers and community at large.
As sustainability moves up the boardroom agenda, it is increasingly being integrated into corporate level strategic planning, in a quest for improved performance and using its agenda for strategic advantage.
What is becoming increasingly evident is that a sound sustainability strategy drives innovation and employee engagement, it satisfies consumers and increases stakeholder inclusivity; it demonstrates compliance and fosters transparency; it strengthens economic performance and protects company’s reputation; - all key ingredients for long-term growth and profitability.
Thus sustainability is a business model that creates consistent value with the long-term preservation and enhancement of environmental, social and financial capital.
