“Ask not what society can do for you, ask what you can do for society”.
“The challenge we are facing today is to manage an evolution towards higher levels of sustainability yet unknown in relation to a broad and expanding list of topics and with an increasingly wide range of stakeholders” (quote professor Nigel Roome)
Good governance at a time when sustainable development is very much on the agenda is more than reducing the negative impact on society. It is also about creating a positive impact and helping to change market forces so that a sector can become more sustainable. Or more action-oriented, how should we adapt our business activities to sustain them 50 years from now? These days, the conversation quickly turns to agile organizations adapting to the digitization that is coming their way. But this is only one side of the coin. In addition to what is coming at an organization, what an organization does to the environment must also be integrated into strategy formation to be sustainable. This broad challenge can also strengthen pride in the organization’s work, it’s brand and its sector. What are we waiting for? (Professor dr. ir. André Nijhof).
