Sustainable Business

The concept of sustainable development is based on the conviction that long term development can be achieved only by bringing into balance all four dimensions of sustainability. Consequently, companies have to face a major challenge: conciliating all different aspects of sustainability:

  • economic sustainability: guarantee economic growth
  • ecological sustainability: produce environmentally friendly and use natural resources efficiently
  • social sustainability: ensure social justice and employee’s participation
  • institutional and societal sustainability: assume responsibility in society (good governance, stakeholder dialogue, anti-corruption)


Integrating the concept of sustainable development into planning and management will result in multiple benefits for the company:
- improve your profitability by using resources more efficiently
- enhance motivation of your employees
- balance your stakeholder interests (employees, customers, citizens, authorities, unions, shareholder)
- improve your image
- strengthen your long-term market position
