Corporate Sustainability Frameworks?
Santosh Nagarajan, Member
Can anyone please help me with a corporate sustainability model or framework being adopted in organizations? I am trying to implement this aspect in my organization. Thanks & regards.

Corporate Sustainability Model
lepage, Member
Dear colleague, I have been working on organizations with a Markov model of sustainability. One publication is available in the TQM journal about the topic, from my experience (author Alain Lepage).
Don't hesitate to have a connection with me. I would be pleased to give some help.

GRI (Global Reporting Initiative)
daizy, Member
GRI is an acronym that stand for: Global Reporting Initiative.
It is a universal sustainability framework which is divided into 3 parts:
- Economic which covers nine indicators,
- Environmental which covers 30 indicators, and
- Social which covers 40 indicators.
For more information see the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines of current version G3: here.

Corporate Sustainability Framework by Eccles and Serafeim
Jaap de Jonge, Editor
Another recent CS Framework is the 4-stage sustainability strategy framework by Eccles and Serafeim:
1. IDENTIFY the most critical ESG issues in your type of business.
2. QUANTIFY the financial impact of ESG improvements (one can use the SASB Materiality Maps for this, which distinguishes 43 potential impact issues in 5 main categories: Environment, Social Capital, Human Capital, Business Model and Innovation, Leadership and Governance).
3. Undertake MAJOR INNOVATION in products, processes and business models to achieve the improvements under 2 (Improving a single product or process innovation will be insufficient to affect the whole corporation).
4. COMMUNICATE with stakeholders about these innovations. For example by integrating ERG information in the annual report.
