Before continuing my Social and Economic Sustainability focus, resetting and getting back to basics is essential. So, let me lay a foundation.

What is Economic Sustainability?

Economic Sustainability is an interesting one. There is not a 'formal' United Nations Sustainable Development Goals or Global Compact definition; however, based on the Sustainability Development Goals and the role of business, the meaning inferred and my definition is:

Economic Sustainability in the business context is when a company makes money while conserving the natural and human resources that provide inputs for economic production, renewable and exhaustible, producing outputs and profit.

My niche is Social and Economic Sustainability, focusing on the supply chain.

I am launching Build Global Updates, where I share thought leadership and insights that challenge the status and forecast the future of crucial Social and Economic Sustainability issues. The spaces will be intentionally limited, Chatham House rule and will not be recorded given the subject matter.
