The base definition of sustainability that many of our clients start with as they begin to define their own strategy and action plan is: an increase in productivity and/or reduction of consumed resources without compromising product or service quality, competitiveness, or profitability while helping to save the environment.

No matter how a company defines sustainability or how they choose to implement the concepts there are commonalities to sustainability that run through all businesses and industries.

Sustainability creates a competitive business advantage while positively impacting the environment. It is a business strategy that aligns all the critical components of a successful organization.

People + Process + Environment = Profit

It has been proven that sustainable practices in business lead to profitability, growth and success.
