What makes an organisation healthy? What enables it to flourish in an uncertain environment? I believe that the key to enabling an organisation to ‘live long and prosper’ is through the notion of sustainability.
Within business ethics sustainability has been much discussed but its meaning is as equally disputed. This is more serious than it sounds; sustainability is about more than window dressing or the correct use of the latest ‘buzz word’ in order to give the appearance of having the correct ethical credentials. It goes to the heart of any complex system – and all organisations are complex social systems.
