What is Strategic Sustainability?

Strategic Sustainability is similar to the concept of ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) and adopts a holistic and strategic approach to sustainability:

      • Doing good for the Environment (Environmental Sustainability)
      • Doing good for the Society (Social Sustainability)
      • Doing good for the Business (Economic Sustainability)

Strategic Sustainability goes beyond single dimensional aspects such as CSR or Diversity & Inclusion or Carbon Footprint, it incorporates all of these and much more to give a full picture of how well a company is performing.
