Sustainability / Green / Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Sustainability was defined by the Brundtland Report circa 1987, as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), is about businesses considering the interests of society by taking responsibility for the impact of their activities on everything and everyone they touch, including the environment. Green is a philosophy and social concern for the conservation and improvement of the environment. While much of the drive for Sustainability / Green / CSR has come from regulatory directives, research has shown that if implemented constructively, these initiatives can drive business performance improvements in many areas. Business software applications are now emerging to help companies achieve these goals by providing capabilities to eliminate waste, reduce energy consumption, use alternative materials, optimize the supply chain and other initiatives.
