Your journey towards sustainable business management

28 March 2022

In recent years, sustainability has become synonymous with “going green” or “reducing emissions and carbon footprint”. In other words, when most people think about sustainability, they think about things like reducing emissions, energy consumption or tracking water usage, etc.

And while there is nothing wrong with these actions - they are indeed essential goals -, this is only the tip of
the iceberg. The most often quoted definition comes from the UN World Commission on Environment and Development: sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

Sustainability considers natural resources as limited. Therefore, these resources should be used reasonably taking into consideration long term priorities and consequences in their use. Sustainability is not just about going green; in addition to natural resources, we also need social and economic resources.
