What is Sustainability?

Someone once asked me, “How do you explain sustainability to your 6-year-old son?”

And this is how my interview started… At our core we all want to be seen, heard, treated with kindness, and be trusted. The same for corporations and those who run them. Our clients work hard towards #sustainability in #mining, an industry with a very negative reputation. We work with our clients to build strong and cohesive sustainability processes, build internal capacity, and to share their #business and #sustainability story effectively, which helps build credibility and trust with employees, communities, investors. A #SustainabilityReport is a milestone – not the end – in a corporation’s business and sustainability program. It is part of the process to assess #ESG performance and to plan next steps.

Integrating Sustainability Into Major Projects

With the growing need for sustainability management on large resource, infrastructure and power projects, this book presents project teams and sustainability practitioners with the practical advice, tools, and resources they need to create better projects. It offers extensive guidance for influencing stakeholders to integrate sustainability into project delivery. In each chapter, the authors provide invaluable sustainability management tools, such as, sample project engineering workflows, a stakeholder engagement spectrum diagram, a sample permit tracker, and a constraints mapping diagram.

Integrating Sustainability on Major Projects: Best Practices and Tools for Project Teams begins by introducing readers to the topic, as well as the common terminology. It then offers readers an overview of major projects, covering types of projects and project structures, the key players, and how to manage time and space. Next, it looks at standards and guidelines, followed by chapters on: Project Management; Managing Risk and Opportunity; Sustainability Management Tools; Approvals and Permits; Design; Procurement; Construction Management; Commissioning; and more.

    • Provides analysis tools and resources that practitioners and project teams can use to successfully integrate and manage sustainability on major projects including industrial and infrastructure projects
    • Guides readers on how to influence stakeholders and develop sustainability programs that support project financing
    • Includes case studies and expertise from actual sustainable project practitioners and the authors’ professional experience
    • Leads practitioners through the major project types and their typical components, structure, and timelines, and demonstrates how sustainability can be incorporated into each type

Integrating Sustainability on Major Projects provides the tools major project teams need to successfully integrate sustainability into project management, making it an ideal book for sustainability practitioners and project teams working on major resource, power, or infrastructure projects. It would also benefit graduate students in sustainable engineering, sustainability management, or environmental design and architecture.
