Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. ~ The World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987
Today more than ever before, we recognize the serious challenges before us:economic instability, shrinking resources for individuals and communities, expanding political conflicts and the overall retooling of a flawed system.And yet, there also remains considerable optimism.
Indeed, this seems like the perfect time for us to construct a new landscape, based upon good sense, good business and good stewardship.That is, Sustainability.
Corporate Sustainability (CS) or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a business approach that creates long-term shareholder value, improves performance by removing waste, and manages risk. Frequently referred to as the Triple Bottom Line, (People, Planet and Profit), corporate sustainability considers the interrelationship of economic, environmental and social issues.
As environmental and social issues become fixed in mainstream business thinking, many businesses are beginning to focus on sustainability. How about your business: is corporate sustainability a part of your organization's ongoing strategic conversations? This is where we come in.
Working in concert with global and national environmental, scientific and research institutions, we have developed a program for small businesses to help develop triple bottom line thinking, strategies and implementation. We partner with you to create a customized sustainable framework that supports and maintains your strategic business objectives.
Right now sustainability is an innovation driver in new clean and green technology, creative business models, and worthwhile customer experiences. It's also an ongoing process that helps your small business demonstrate to your community at large that you are working not just towards profit, but the greater common good.
