Here’s an article I wrote for Ethical Investor on whole-of-business sustainability management. The main thrust of the article is to point out that sustainability, as a business issue, has moved from the periphery–compliance and cost–to the centre: it is now a major strategic issue. Sustainability factors now impact all parts of the business, including finance and accounting, operations and marketing, all integrated in strategy development at the highest levels of the organisation. In this article I also feature two leading Australian companies, Adelaide Brighton Ltd and Newmont Australia, who have taken on the sustainability challenge in different but equally interesting ways.
