Decoding Sustainability. What does it mean to me?
The concept of sustainability doesn’t come in a standardized, universal format. Its interpretation and implementations are deeply contextual. For an individual, sustainability might mean adopting a plant-based diet, minimizing waste, or utilizing public transport. In the realm of business, it could manifest as the incorporation of circular economy principles, reducing carbon emissions, or making investments in renewable energy.
A key feature of sustainability is including diverse communities and the unique voices they represent and support. To realize a better world, enterprises must engage diverse people outside their niche. Doing so helps: Bridge gaps, Broaden positive influence and reach, and bring in new strategies and perspectives.
