As with all elements of the organization, sustainability goals can only be met, and risks reduced, if a strategy is in place. Then the hard part begins: Having the processes, people, and skill to execute on the strategy. Successfully managed sustainability strategies serve as responses to stakeholders, regulators, employees, investors, and the community. We have been honoured to lead private organizations, non-profits, utilities, and communities through sustainability strategy development. When needed we continue working with them to ensure that the needed triggers for action are embedded in their organizations.
