Sustainability Pyramid

EcoSTEPS Sustainability Pyramid gives your sustainability program an integrated and coordinated approach. Top-level strategic direction and leadership combines with major process and technical improvements with continuous innovation from all resources. This becomes part of daily life not an extra burden on already busy workloads.



Implementing sustainability has much in common with implementing any major organisation-wide change:

New ideas:
The key concepts, principles, techniques and tools of the new approach, in this case sustainability, need to be well understood and practiced throughout the organisation;

Specifically applied:
They need to be applied knowledgeably to the specific requirements in your industry;

Managed appropriately:
The changes need to be introduced in such a way that people at all levels will want to, and will succeed in, adopting and applying sustainability principles on an ongoing basis. The changes also need to be managed effectively so that the collective resources achieve the highest possible impact;

Aligned with business strategy & plans:
The approach and actions need to link with and contribute to other recognised business objectives. Performance indicators need to be developed and monitored in a way that adds value.

A sustainability program requires an integrated and coordinated approach, where top-level direction and leadership combines with major process and technical improvements - with continuous innovation from all resources. This becomes part of daily life - not an extra burden on already busy workloads. The Sustainability Pyramid illustrates these dimensions.

As part of early diagnosis work, EcoSTEPS will work with you to co-design the overall sustainability approach for your organisation, and the program of work to achieve it.
