What is sustainability?
Understanding Sustainability
Our world today is at crossroads. We face a multitude of challenges such as the increasing impact of climate change, supply chain disruptions, the evolvement of new technologies, and challenges from social issues.

This is where sustainability comes into play. The drive toward sustainability or sustainable development is transforming the global economy, creating new risks and opportunities for companies of all sizes affecting procurement criteria, production, and delivery contracts as well investor’s perspectives. 

Moreover, lawmakers, financial markets, business partners, and civil society are calling for stricter compliance and greater transparency regarding sustainability in global supply chains. The sustainability performance of a company directly influences its overall success and is increasingly becoming a key differentiator, a marketing advantage, and a compelling sales point.

The Environmental, Social, and Economic Foundations of a Sustainable Future
The Three Pillars of Sustainability

Understanding sustainability and business best practices will be essential to manage your company’s future. In general terms, sustainability refers to the ability to maintain or support a process continuously over a longer period. Sustainability is a holistic approach to managing the world’s resources, aiming to meet human needs while ensuring the future generations can enjoy a quality life. This approach is often conceptualized through the framework of the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social, and economic.

  • Environmental Sustainability:  focuses on protecting natural resources and maintaining ecosystem health. This pillar emphasizes the need to manage resources in a way that prevents degradation and preserves the planet for future generations. Key practices include reducing pollution, conserving energy, and promoting biodiversity.
  • Social Sustainability: aims to foster communities that are equitable and harmonious. This pillar addresses issues such as social equity, labor rights, and community development. It advocates for policies and practices that support health, education, and justice for all individuals, ensuring that development benefits are shared equitably.
  • Economic Sustainability: involves creating an economic value that is long-lasting, equitable, and efficient, ensuring that economic growth does not compromise other sustainability pillars. It seeks to build economies that provide opportunities for employment and prosperity without depleting the natural resources and social capital needed for the future.

Together, these three pillars are interdependent and reinforce the idea that true sustainability comes from balancing all three aspects to create a resilient and thriving global society.

How can organizations lead the way to sustainability?
Sustainability Reporting as a Start

A key element of demonstrating the commitment of an organisation to sustainable development is sustainability reporting (or ESG reporting – ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance, related article: ESG is a Pressing Issue Rather Than Just a Trend).  In order to be economically successful, we need to think beyond purely financial aspects. Sustainability reporting reflects non-financial aspects such as resource management, climate-related risks and opportunities and other sustainability topics.

Benefits of sustainability reporting

Sustainability reporting serves as a critical mechanism for incorporating sustainability principles into your company’s operations, helping to effectively manage the challenges and capitalize on the opportunities presented by sustainability. This reporting acts as a valuable management resource for assessing and monitoring the organization’s impact across economic, environmental, and social dimensions. Additionally, it serves as an effective communication channel, conveying the company’s sustainability efforts to both internal and external stakeholders.

By implementing sustainability reporting, companies lay the groundwork for enhanced engagement with stakeholders. This not only builds trust and strengthens reputation but also attracts investment and provides a competitive edge in the market.
