  • 2. Corporate Sustainability:Defined
    Corporate sustainability is a business approach that creates long-term shareholder value by embracing opportunities and managing risks deriving from economic, environmental and social developments.
  • 3. Triple Bottom Line:People, Planet, Profit
    Economic sustainability is the ability of an organization to maintain economic profitability by generating value from its offering of products and services. Successful organizations find a way to translate their relative competitive advantages into economic values that deliver returns to their owners.
    Environmental sustainability is the ability of an organization to ensure that its long-run economic behavior is not undermining its own or the broader natural environment. This recognizes that natural resources have a finite capacity either for exploitation or as origins for pollutants.
    Social sustainability is the recognition that an organization operates within a broader social context and relies on it to prosper and survive. The social dimension of sustainability affects an organization’s activities at every step of the value chain – from suppliers’ use of international labor to, employee, customer and community engagement
