The concepts of social responsibility, business sustainability and living a sustainable lifestyle have been around for a long time.  However, these conversations have traditionally been between a smaller set of social and business practitioners.  Today, we are all exploring sustainability as an engrained part of our lives.  We hear about  going green on the radio, in  newspapers, websites, blogs and while we each have a different version of what going green means to us and our businesses, how to qualify its meaning.  As the year is quickly drawing to a close, many are asking how to plan for sustainability in 2011.  

Within our sustainability consulting practice, we find that integrating sustainability concepts into core business functions makes companies more nimble in a fast-changing world.  It also makes a business’s brands more attractive to consumers and its executive management more respected by employees, regulators and the financial markets. In short, the drivers for improved business sustainability equate to improved performance and cost savings.  
Why not capitalize on the competitive advantage now and jump start your 2011 planning with the following sustainable business strategies?  By integrating sustainability concepts into the business, you are positively impacting the environment and generating bright business ideas for the year ahead.  Click here to continue reading.
