Sustainability is about ensuring long term business success while contributing towards economic and social development, a healthy environment and a stable society. Put simply, sustainability is anchored in 3Ps i.e. Planet, People and Profit.

Sustainability is creation of value for a wide range of stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, communities and Government, with particular consideration for the needs of future generation. The global importance of sustainability is reflected in changing customer expectations and emerging national and international legislation. Companies’ chances of operating successfully and engaging in international trade depend more and more on their ability to mitigate social and environmental risks and to capitalize on opportunities for innovation. Sustainability has become an essential element of competitive advantage something which business cannot ignore.
