Organizational Sustainability Leadership and Commitment
The top leader of an organization needs to demonstrate leadership and commitment to the organizational sustainability program by paying attention to the following actions:
Assuming accountability for the effectiveness of the organizational sustainability program
Ensuring that the sustainability policy and the organizational objectives are established and are compatible with the strategic direction and the context of the organization
Ensuring the integration of the organizational sustainability requirements into the organization’s business processes – sustainability is part of what every employee does everyday
Making certain that the resources needed for the organizational sustainability program are available
Communicating the importance of effective sustainability management and of conforming to the organizational sustainability program requirements
Ensuring that the top leader promotes organizational sustainability by focusing on meeting the operational objectives of the organization
Directing and supporting the workers with the assistance of the sustainability management team to demonstrate their leadership as it applies to their areas of responsibility.
The purpose of the sustainability mandate is to ensure that the organization clearly understands the benefits of risk management and sustainability and will embrace the change involved by embedding these practices into the way the organization operates every day. It is necessary for the organization’s top leader to be deeply involved in these programs in order to establish credibility with the external stakeholders.
