Description

Sustainability is not just about being “green” – sustainability is fast becoming the key to reducing energy costs, meeting stakeholder needs, achieving business goals and staying ahead of the game. All organisations are exposed to economic, environmental and social risks. Good sustainable practice strengthens brands and brings business benefit but poor environmental or social behaviour can be very damaging. Sustainability is a key element of organisational risk management and needs to be part of the core learning and personal development programme for everyone.
