The concept of sustainability continues gaining more attention and yet it can be open to different interpretations and applications. Businesses, organizations, and municipalities along with future leaders, changemakers, visionaries must consider sustainability holistically and strategically to effect change.
Sustainability is a way of doing business, planning and of executing, especially considering climate change, human rights, ethics, transparency, and liability. Businesses and civil society alike must heed the call to consider all stakeholders vis-à-vis a very connected world and bring about transformative change. The Circular Economy, Environment Social Governance (ESG) metrics, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) among others are not only a new language but instead necessary components, frameworks, concepts for organizations to go beyond “business as usual”. CvCC can advise your company on how to engage the SDGs and make ESG the driving force of how you do business as so many other businesses are doing now.
In August 2019 the Business Roundtable, an association of U.S. chief executive officers representing various sectors, signed a statement whereby 181 CEOs committed to “lead their companies for the benefit of all stakeholders – customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders”. Seeking financial returns is no longer the only reason for a company to exist. The commitment to stakeholders must include a sustainability lens.
The term “black swan” which is attributed to an unforeseen, catastrophic event can leave unprepared companies floundering. With COVID-19 considered a black swan event, scenario planning with a resilience and sustainability lens is a necessity to minimize potential adverse effects and consider all stakeholders.
