Their performance must be based on three pillars: financial,social and environmental.

Sustainable development is an unreachable goal that requires constant progress, effort and adaptation. Corporate Social Responsibility does not therefore involve a binary judgement: “I’m sustainable development” or “I’m not”. Though it encourages progress, an assessment of the level of maturity as a recognition of the organisation’s efforts is the most appropriate ethical and technical solution.
