What is sustainability?

Sustainability "seeks to meet the needs and aspirations of the present without compromising the ability to meet those of the future" (1983 World Commission on Environment and Development (Brundtland Commission)).

This involves:

  • the integration of economic growth, social equity and environmental management;
  • having a future orientation and taking responsibility for the broader and longer term impact of actions today;
  • engaging in actions that are human, considered, dignified and intrinsically satisfying.

Why should business practices be sustainable?

By adopting sustainable practices, an employer fosters innovation; attracts and retains talented and committed employees; and increases competitive advantage, market share, and shareholder value:

  • sustainable practices are often low cost or no cost but can generate revenue
  • the employer can come to be acknowledged market leaders in the growing demand from society and government for sustainable business practices;
  • relationships with customers, suppliers, government and the broad community are fostered;
  • costs are reduced by minimising negative environmental and social effects;
  • employee engagement and motivation and hence productivity are all enhanced.
