METHODOLOGICAL

APPROACH

STRATEGY AND

MANAGEMENT

Through your strategic decisions and management processes you can drive improvements for sustainability throughout the whole business. The focus might be in areas such as community impact, compliance, governance, planning and procedures.


You could target social sustainability by building stronger relationships with the local community or by providing training and development programs for employees.


You could focus on your management systems and procedures to ensure that your values and commitment to sustainability are embedded in the whole organisation.


Your strategic and management approach will have a direct effect on how sustainable your business is.


Your strategic decisions will guide the implementation of your operational efficiency projects and whether you invest in technology and product design improvements.

DESIGN AND

TECHNOLOGY

Design and technology is a broad term covering areas such as environmental monitoring and control, facility design and management and product improvement and lifecycle.


You might want to develop new energy efficiency features or clever products that help consumers be more sustainable. Or you might set targets to improve the energy efficiency of your buildings and facilities.


You could set up an environmental management system to help manage risks and take regular measurements of air, water and soil quality so that you can respond quickly to any incidents.


Your design and technology decisions will play a significant role in your performance in sustainability, particularly your economic viability and environmental sustainability.


There is a growing market for consumer and commercial products with ‘clever’ features.

OPERATIONS

IMPROVEMENT

You might decide to target your day to day operations. This might include areas such as measuring and reporting sustainability performance, operational resource efficiency, process improvement, supply chain decisions and waste management.


You could encourage employees to make energy savings and to find ways to make your processes more efficient. You could set up productivity and efficiency systems that target process waste and waiting time as well as waste materials.


Or you might work on a more sustainable supply chain taking into account the carbon footprint of materials as well as a supplier’s track record in ethical treatment of workers.


The day to day operations of your business are the ‘coal face’ for many sustainability activities. Operational employees have a crucial role in achieving business strategies.


A sustainable business will encourage and respond to suggestions for efficiency improvements and other innovations.
