Creating a sustainable business
Stakeholders expect your company to generate profits, but, they also want your company to make a positive contribution to our societies while minimizing any negative effect it might have on the environment. This approach to business, balancing economic interests against social and environmental concerns, is commonly referred to as sustainability.

Over the past decade, sustainability has moved from the fringes of the business world to the top of stakeholders' agenda. The concept of sustainability has gained grip among corporate employees, regulators, and customers, too. Consequently, any miscalculation or misjudgment of matters related to sustainability can have serious repercussions on how the world views your company and its values.

For business management, finding the right balance among the economic, social, and environmental goals is the essence of responsible leadership. In practice, responsible leadership means integrating ethical considerations into the company decision-making process, and managing on the basis of personal integrity and widely-held organizational values. Responsible leaders manage for the common good and gain authority and legitimacy in direct proportion to their success in serving others.

Clearly, a perfect balance of all competing interests is difficult to achieve and managers are bound to have difficulty in the process. Nevertheless, most stakeholders are adamantly in favor of businesses dealing with sustainability issues in an honest and open fashion. Therefore, companies must establish trust between themselves and their various stakeholders’ communities. Sometimes the process of establishing trust can be really slow, but it starts by understanding stakeholders' concerns and acknowledging them. Only after you've identified stakeholder issues can you start to prioritize them and develop suitable approaches and outreach programs.
