Sustainability Management Framework
CESD is pioneering development and implementation of Sustainability Mangement Framework for Indian industry in the belief that future competitiveness requires internalization of sustainability management through a clear, practical and integrated framework. This is a systematic approach to optimize management of key economic, environmental and social impacts of company''s products, services and processes. Benefits of adopting this framework includes enhanced decision-making, minimised risks, reduced costs, and increased customer loyalty. These benefits position a company as partner of choice, attract talent and financial resources, and ultimately enhance competitiveness and profitability. Above all, SMF provides the prospect of being architects of a better future for businesses, for others and for generations to come. In direct contrast to the traditional management approaches of companies, businesses need to embrace environmental, social and economic drivers of society so as to achieve any level of stability in the global commons. The Centre provides training on ISO 26001 and assists in development of policies, SOPs in alignment with international frameworks, which enable companies to imbibe sustainability within their practices more thoroughly.
