Description

Sustainability is a key issue that organisations and institutions around the world grapple with. This multimedia book comprises eight cases that explore various perspectives of sustainability as well as organisations and institutions at the forefront of this field. Although most of the cases are set in Singapore, the principles of sustainable development are applicable far beyond this Little Red Dot. The challenges of social enterprises’ dual mission of doing good while staying financially viable, of established companies’ efforts to groom and retain human capital, and governments’ coordinated efforts to build a liveable and sustainable future, are universal and applicable to many organisations and countries. We aim to spark discussion on how doing well and doing good can be – and are – complementary and to highlight the triple bottom line of economic viability, social impact and environmental sustainability as a primary metric to steer organisations and institutions toward thoughtful action to co-create sustainable living for the future.
