Corporate sustainability is a long term strategy to protect the natural environment while accounting for every dimension of business operations including social, cultural and economic factors. Some consumers might view corporate sustainability efforts as “nice.” But I would argue the vision for corporate sustainability is a global strategic imperative.
During the past half-century, our planet has changed at an astonishing rate. Global population has more than doubled. The need for food, water and fuel has increased significantly. Humanity has been challenged with changing climate patterns, diminishing freshwater resources and deteriorating air quality.
These problems will certainly worsen unless global sustainability initiatives are strategically implemented.
