Sustainability as a concept sets up a framework of new objectives for organisations. Addressing these objectives – across environmental, social, economic and governance aspects – means working with staff, and other stakeholders, to clarify the organisation’s challenges and develop clear goals and strategies for addressing them.

Organisations can choose to wait until they are directed by government or by community expectations to address sustainability. On the other hand, many managers are seeing the sizable benefits to be had from embracing sustainability and the new era it brings. They are choosing to develop early interventions in their way of doing business to realise those benefits and to minimise the risks from late action. Risks of not addressing sustainability early and appropriately enough stem from multiple sources including new legislation, losses in production and escalating costs and the potential for loss of competitive advantage in the marketplace.
