Executive Summary The underlying challenge for human organizations in the 21st century is to build and preserve a sustainable combination/blend of economic, social, and environmental conditions in a progressive global and commercial society. However, it is a challenge that is not being met at present. Currently it is failing to meet even the basic needs of the society, or to protect its natural resources and the ecosystems that produce them, even as it creates unprecedented wealth and amenities for a few. The reasons for these failures lie in both economic and political institutions. Sustainable Enterprises pioneers established concepts and tools for implementing eco-efficiency measures and also show how to use them immediately to reap business worth. Business enterprises in turn must quantify themselves against a “triple bottom line” which includes social value, environmental and economic profit. ArcelorMittal is one such company that has implemented eco-efficiency measures and realized the business benefits.

Monitoring Systems Monitoring is a systematic and on-going activity which involves collecting, recording and reporting information. Monitoring systems for any organisation should be developed for three dimensions based on the triple bottom line. Monitoring Systems for Planet Monitoring systems and eco-tracking help to answer some fundamental questions:   What are the company‟s big environmental impacts? When and where do those impacts arise? During manufacturing, shipping and distribution? Or upstream in the supply chain? Or downstream in the hands of customers?  How do others view the company‟s environmental performance?

We have done so within the scope of our Company’s wholly owned operations. Where we have reported information on behalf of the Coca-Cola system (The Coca-Cola Company and our bottling partners), we have flagged this information within the body of the text. For 2012, and the 2011/2012 Sustainability Report specifically, our Company has self-declared a grade B against the GRI G3.1 Guidelines. This year’s Sustainability Report has also received verification by a third-party external verification agency, FIRA Sustainability BV. Their verification is evidenced by a “+” sign next to our grade B, which reflects their verification and approval of our tracking systems. Throughout this report, you will find the KPIs that we have addressed, along with additional information regarding our most critical initiatives and programs. While we strive to continuously increase our transparency, some of the information requested in response to additional KPIs could put at risk our ability to compete and......

Conclusion 22 13. Resources 23 1. Introduction: This document will attempt to apply the 4 principles of natural capitalism in an effort to transform Bimdagen Nursery into a sustainable organisation. It is also recognised that many of the recommendations made relate to environmental conservation in that they require further processing and are not totally sustainable and renewable. Sustainability encompasses maintaining a delicate balance between the human need to improve lifestyles and feeling of well-being on one hand, and preserving natural resources and ecosystems, on which we and future generations depend. (Global Development Research Centre, 2007) This involves using renewable resources at or below the rate of renewal. According to Lovins (1999, pp146-147), the journey for businesses and society as a whole to reach natural capitalism involves four major shifts: • The dramatic increase in productivity of natural resources, • The shift to biologically inspired production models, • A move to a solutions-based business model, and • A reinvestment in natural capital. These principles will form the foundations of this report and the recommendations made. 2. Scope of......

Acc 310 Sustainability Report

...October 22, 2013, 1:30 pm An introduction to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and sustainability reporting The Sustainability Initiative at NC State was started through the endowed gift of Lonnie Poole. As part of the Initiative we are examining sustainability issues throughout the curriculum. For accountants one of the most important issues of sustainability is reporting information to stakeholders. Just as we are learning about financial reporting in Intermediate Financial Accounting we also want to learn about sustainability reporting. The purpose of this case is to make you aware of sustainability reporting and sustainability reports. On the moodle site I have assigned each student a company that has prepared a report based on the GRI Sustainability Reporting Framework and filed it with GRI. Each student should obtain the company’s report from the GRI webpage (globalreporting.org) or from the company’s corporate webpage. Sustainability reporting is not required Even though more and more companies are providing sustainability reports there is no requirement to report or any required standards like GAAP. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) currently provides a framework, with over 3,500 companies filing under the GRI framework. However, given that there is no enforcement of reporting companies may select different levels of reporting and different indicators to report on as well. This results in varied reporting and sometimes very incomparable......

Marks & Spencer Sustainability Report

...strong ethos of fair trade, treating its staff well, building strong long-term relationships with its suppliers and developing new and initiative relations with its customers from the company outset. (D. Grayson, 2011). Marks & Spencer was the first high street retailer to allow customers to enter their shops without paying for the privilege, prior to this, the proviso was that a customer entering a shop had to buy an item, something that is taken for granted today but in 1894 was unheard of. (marksandspencer.com 2015.) In 1997 the company became the first British retailer to make a pre-tax profit of over £1 billion, although subsequently it went into a sudden slump, which took the company, its shareholders, who included hundreds of thousands of small investors, and nearly all retail analysts and business journalists, by surprise. The reasons were the increasing level of profit margin, the refusal of the company to accept credit cards, the principle of the company to deal with mainly only British suppliers. (research-methodology.net 2012). In 2004, Marks & Spencer's was in the throes of an attempted takeover by the BHS boss, Philip Green, which was only thwarted by a huge backlash from its shareholders and its new chief executive Stuart Rose.

Sustainability Report on Shell

...There are things that manufactures can do to go green. With any good company they will keep researching what they can do to help protect the environment for years to come. Some of the manufacturing companies will do what the EPA (Environment Protection Agency) wants them to do and there is other that goes above and beyond what it expected of them. In my opinion Shell Gas is one of the manufactures that is trying to do the most that they can to help protect the environment. Some of the things that Shell is doing to go green is using less energy, less water, prevent spills, and protect the environmentally sensitive areas. After the BP deepwater horizon explosion in 2011, Shell has been researching what they can do to make sure that this doesn’t happen again. After this spill happened Shell had worries about how their deep water drilling could be affected by this explosion. This explosion had caused Shell to lose between 40,000 and 80,000 gallons of oil. Along with this it made Shell look bad in the gas and oil industry by the loss of all the oil and the harm that was done to the ocean waters and the animals that depend on that water. Shell is now reinforcing a culture where safety is the core value. They are also making sure that all employees understand this value and making sure that every employee understands their role in making Shell a safer place to work. As a part of Shell’s research they have engaged in a six billion dollar program to improve the safety of their......
