Sustainability has been defined as economic development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
In other words, sustainability practices require for a company to maintain a sustainable growth while limiting impact on resources and the environment. Contrary to popular belief, there are not infinite resources in a finite world. Every decision that a business makes has an environmental, social, and economic impact in both the local community as well as global. This is known as the Triple Bottom Line.
The Triple Bottom Line looks at the environmental, social, and economic risks, costs, and benefits of any business project. Some of these risks and costs are negative and some are positive. It is necessary to categorize the likelihood of these impacts as well as to increase positive risks, and lessen or eliminate negative risks.
We can help assess what your Triple Bottom Line is and to help you increase revenues by becoming sustainable by using the tools of the Triple Bottom Line
The UN Sustainability Goals of 2030
Per the UN Website:
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
