Sustainability is not easily defined, as its meaning is framed by the expectations of customers, the perceptions of the public and the realities of business. For years, corporations have been guided by the triple bottom line of financial, environmental and social responsibility. The triple bottom line has often been referred to as Profit-People-Planet.
SES can help companies manage their triple bottom line through:
- Definition, measurement and reporting of production metrics – to manage you must measure
- Cultivation of sustainable practices
- Development of verifiable standards
- Assessing and improving resiliency of operations and the supply chain
- Staff training
- Supplier outreach
