The Organization’s Sustainability Policy


The top leader must establish, implement, and maintain an organizational sustainability policy to provide an effective means to clearly express the organization’s intentions and requirement for managing risk and sustainability. The effectiveness rests on the expression of the organization’s motivation for managing risk and sustainability and explicitly establishing what is required and by whom. The Leader must set the proper tone by emphasizing the necessity of using risk management (from the application of the organization’s context) and organizational sustainability to help manage the opportunities and threats that define the uncertainty within which the organization operates.


Effective communication of the policy also requires confirmation that the information has been understood by the stakeholders within and external to the organization
