Guide to Sustainability


In response to growing stakeholder concerns, companies now define their success in ways that go far beyond the profit they generate. Many organizations are increasingly taking responsibility for their impact in the community and in the world and claim that sustainable practices are a strategic ambition.

However, ESG – environmental, social and corporate governance – has had a parallel agenda and is still mostly managed as a stand-alone initiative. Sustainability objectives thus compete with business management, resulting in disorganized execution and slow progress. In this guide we present the 4 steps to integrate sustainability into your organization’s strategy:

1. Review and plan the business strategy

2. Deploy the strategy until the point of impact

3. Implement the strategic breakthrough initiatives

4. Monitor results and implement countermeasures
