Publisher Description

With insights from many examples, The 5 Essential Steps to Sustainable Viability takes you from big ideas to practical workable solutions. It’s a paradigm shift. 

To flourish, sustainability must orientate from being process-obsessed to result-focused. Sustainability must bring transformative change and be more than just better than yesterday. Welcome in Sustainable Viability.

A sustainable enterprise can be categorised as one that is capable of being maintained at a desired level of economic activity and performance with minimal long-term adverse effect on the environment or society.

Viability provides the conditions for an enterprise to succeed and prosper.

Sustainable Viability is the state of an enterprise that enables it to benefit its stakeholders, the environment and society increasingly and indefinitely.

Sustainable Viability (SV) is a well-validated, proprietary methodology that enables an organisation - its management, people and teams – to identify areas of the business where objectives are not aligned, opportunities are being missed, the environment is suffering damage, society is being disadvantaged and value is being destroyed.  

Once these issues have been identified and exposed, the organisation is empowered to reimagine and redesign itself into an integrated, self-sustaining entity by harmonising systems and creating equilibrium. 

The SV methodology will then assist management in measuring and validating the outcomes across the whole organisation using novel, proprietary modelling tools and rigorous impact accounting developed over many years.

Sustainable Viability aims to dispel a “silo mentality” and direct the alignment and integration of every facet of an organisation through optimising:

Workplace talent, problem solving and decision making
The impact of design on products and services
Release of cash flow for eco-innovation and growth
Elimination of waste
Utility of assets
Effective stakeholder communications 
Market positioning and disruption
The organisational structure

The SV influence goes as far as providing the evidence for measuring and validating the SV outcomes using rigorous, holistic modelling tools.  The anticipated outcomes are:

Improved productivity
Better risk management
Increased customer satisfaction and retention
Staff and community satisfaction, cohesion and well-being
Elimination of wasteful processes
Reduced environmental impact 
Profitable reprocessing of waste
Better management information
Strengthened economic profit
Harmony and equilibrium
