Contracting for Sustainable Outcomes

Sound social, economic and environmental sustainability outcomes have quickly become a business priority as industry standards have changed to reflect the need for ensuring and maintaining sustainable outcomes. 

A focus on sustainable outcomes in contracting is highly beneficial to an organisation’s success due to the value placed on them by prospective clients.

Developing a successful program for doing so cannot be summarised by a single strategy, however regardless of whether your organisation operates out of the public or the private sector, the following general principles will assist you:

  • Make a sustainability orientation an integral part of your business strategy, culture and management responsibility
  • Canvass your organisation’s specific sustainable development issues and business activities for opportunities to make beneficial changes
  • Analyse the potential for these changes to contribute to one or more of three strategic business requirements, namely stakeholder support, efficiency and market edge
  • Prioritise, develop and implement a unique set of environmental management and sustainable development practices
  • Regularly measure your progress, adapt, improve and extend sustainable development practices to all areas of the business and offerings to clients
  • Celebrate and promote your success in delivering sustainable outcomes in the services you provide
