  4. 4. Overview• Overall goal is to implement sustainability issues in the company’s strategic plan through the balanced scorecard system• Balanced Scorecard is a promising starting-point to incorporate environmental and social aspects into the main management system of a firm.• Sustainability management with Balanced Scorecard helps to overcome the shortcomings of conventional approaches to environmental and social management systems by integrating the three pillars ofPrinted on recycled a single and sustainability into overarching strategic management tool. paper-actually better, not printed at all
  5. 5. Link environmental and social management systems to economic management systems• Many companies have implemented specific environmental or social management systems during the last decade.• These systems have, however, rarely been integrated with the general management system of a firm.• As a consequence environmental and social management is often not linked to the economic success of the firm• Consequently, the economic contribution of environment and social management therefore remains unclear.• This lack of integration is a major obstacle.

  6. 6. The correlation between environmental, social success and economic success• the literature is mainly based on empirical studies that refer to the correlation but not to the causality between environmental and social measures and the economic success of firms• To date there is a small amount of literature on the relation between environmental and social measures and the achievement of long-term economic goals Printed on recycled paper-actually better, not printed at all
  7. 7. Suitability of balanced scorecard as a tool for sustainability management• Management should first identify and realize opportunities for simultaneous improvements in all three dimensions of sustainability (social, ecological and economic goals) in order to achieve strong corporate contributions to sustainability• SBSC offers the possibility to integrate the management of environmental and social aspects into mainstream business activities Printed on recycled paper-actually better, not printed at all
  8. 8. Integrating Sustainability into BSC• Integrating the three pillars of sustainability into general business management (ie:BSC) offers three major advantages – Sustainability management that is economically sound will be practiced in successful and unsuccessful economic periods – Sustainability management that also contributes to economic objectives helps to disseminate the idea of sustainable development in business, as it serves as an appropriate role model for other businesses. – a business improves performance with regard to all the three dimensions of sustainability simultaneously Printed on recycled paper-actually better, not printed at all
  9. 9. Methods of integration• Three possibilities to integrate environmental and social aspects in the BSC – Environmental and social aspects integrated in the existing four standard perspectives. – An additional perspective added to take environmental and social aspects into account – A specific environmental and/or social scorecard is formulated• Preferred in the listed order• A combinationPrinted on approaches is appropriate of these recycled paper-actually better, not printed at all
  10. 10. Integration into the four balanced scorecard perspectives• Similar to adding any other strategic aspect that is relevant to a particular perspective• Through a top down approach – Environmental and social aspects are integrated through respective strategic core elements or performance drivers – lagging and leading indicators as well as targets and measures are formulated• particularly appropriate for environmental and social aspects that areon recycled Printed already integrated in the market system.paper-actually better, not printed at all
  11. 11. Example• a firm that aims at an environmental customer segment – the core measure ‘market share’ in the customer perspective would have an environmentally oriented dimension – the leading indicator ‘product features’ would have an environmental dimension • Environmentally friendly packaging Printed on recycled paper-actually better, not printed at all
  12. 12. Addition of non market perspective• Environmental and social aspects are not fully integrated in the market exchange processes – Example: externalities—non market portion of C0 2 pollution• Consequently a non market perspective needs to be added to incorporate these strategic aspects• In order to justify introduction of an additional non-market perspective, environmental and social aspects from outside the market system must explicitly represent strategic core aspects of the firm• Should only be used if the aspects can not be represented Printed on recycled within the standard four perspectives paper-actually better, not printed at all
  13. 13. A specific environmental and/or social scorecard is formulated• Predominantly used to coordinate, organize and further differentiate the environmental and social aspects• Should not be developed parallel to the conventional scorecard• In order to integrate sustainability management into mainstream business management – Must be added in conjunction with one of the other two integration alternatives Printed on recycled – This is not an independent alternative for integration, it paper-actually better, is an extension not printed at all
  14. 14. The process of formulating an SBSC has to meet the following……• must lead to integration of environmental and social management into business management• the SBSC is business unit specific• environmental and social aspects of a business unit must be integrated according to their strategic relevance Printed on recycled paper-actually better, not printed at all
