Sustainable development is good business in itself. The concept of sustainable development needs to be incorporated into the policies and processes of a business. It requires a new cultural orientation and extensive refinements to systems, practices and procedures. Businesses and societies can find approaches that will move towards all three goals - environmental protection, social wellbeing and economic development, at the same time.
