WHAT IS BUSINESS SUSTAINABILITY?
FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT TO BE SUSTAINABLE, IT MUST ADDRESS IMPORTANT ISSUES AT THE MACRO LEVEL
Business sustainability is an all-encompassing business strategy, vital for all businesses, with costs which are tailored to any budget and objective.
Business sustainability represents resiliency over time. Businesses that can survive turbulent times are ones which are intimately connected to healthy economic, social and environmental systems. These businesses create economic value and contribute to healthy ecosystems and strong communities.
Business sustainability requires businesses to adhere to the principles of sustainable development. According to the World Council of Economic Development (WCED), sustainable development is development that ‘meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.’ So for business development to be sustainable, it must address important issues at the macro level, such as: economic e ciency (innovation, prosperity, productivity), social equity (poverty, community, health and wellness, human rights) and environmental accountability (climate change, land use, biodiversity).
