Given the time for this course and the large topic and concepts; this was an excellent overview and refresher. It allowed me to hear concepts in a different approach
Many organisations still view sustainability as an ‘add-on’ to the business and to be kept separate from core business decisions – often only applied in marketing, branding and in the management of direct environmental impacts.
Today, the scope of sustainability has shifted, it is very much a boardroom and executive level issue. Previously the greater percentage of a company’s value was linked directly to its tangible assets, now less than 20% relates to financial performance and physical assets. The rest reflects intangible assets such as brand, customer base, future market risk, intellectual property and whether a business has a ‘future fit’ business model aligned to responsible management & sustainable business practices.
Is your Business ready for sustainability? Are you tasked with leading on sustainability matters? Uncertain where to focus your attention? Have you assessed your organisation’s strengths and weaknesses
How do you plan for a more sustainable business future? What core values do you want the organisation to reflect? What are your Business Values? What is realistic?
Does your organisation require a position statement on climate change, plastic usage, pollution issues, human slavery or the week’s new sustainability media challenge. How do you prepare one? How do you make it an honest reflection of your business, product, service or brand?
Still reliant on ISO14000? Having trouble integrating sustainability into business policies, plans & processes supporting daily activities. Do organisational project, design and accounting systems encompass sustainability?
Why consider business cases for sustainability? Do you translate EMS priorities into business-critical issues that senior managers understand? How do you gain additional budget funding or support or sustainability
CSR involves companies taking responsibility for their impacts on society & the environment and communicating that care. Many SMEs are well placed to engaged in CSR practices unknowingly through their family ethics, leadership core values and desire to make a positive impact in their locality.
