Building Sustainable Organizations: Making a Difference and Measuring Success
Environmental protection in the 21st century is evolving beyond a simple and traditional regulatory compliance orientation to a more complex collaborative, innovative, trust/transparency/verify, and problem solving multi-stakeholder orientation. Businesses and governments are now required to address environmental problems and associated social pressures that are continuously evolving with time. In particular, companies find they must handle environmental affairs in response to insurance companies, investors and other financial institutions, media, labor unions, consumers, suppliers and other international legal regimes. Therefore, a premium is placed on an organization’s strategic capacity to create a more sustainability-oriented organizational culture that is proactive, pragmatic and resilient, while at the same time merges maintenance of competitiveness and enhances collaboration as core objectives of the firm.
Pollution Prevention is one important strategic approach that can help an organization become more sustainable over time. On this webinar, we will hear from a range of organizations, public to private, all working to make a difference in the quest for sustainability, whether it be on a state/regional, corporate, business sector, and/or within specific facilities respectively. In each case, the presenters will identify challenges to progress and how to track success.
