Sustainability are cross-disciplinary efforts; sustainability innovation is the scalable way that can be learned and practiced.

Today’s digital business environment is dynamic, complex, and uncertain; there are always different complexities at a different time or dimensions. A sustainable society will only come through common beliefs, the accumulated actions of billions of individuals. There are the trends with an interdisciplinary convergence of sciences and humanities essential toward a circular economy and our shared beautiful planet.

It’s the time to renew ourselves, renew our beautiful planet via a sustainability lens: Sustainability is not just the buzzword about corporate social responsibility, but an important capability to improve bottom line profitability in the lower carbon, sustainable economic era, and make an influence on the global ecosystem. It is the low hanging fruit when moving beyond compliance and obligation.

When we look at the hyper rising costs of energy in recent years, efficiency has been a key internal driver for sustainable practices. Thus, business units need to be engaged with implementing sustainability initiatives; sustainability needs to be integrated into existing key process & performance management systems. The organizations need to build the right capabilities to enhance sustainability and improve business maturity.

It’s critical to develop the best practice for catalyzing sustainability innovation: All too often many organizations perhaps manage a few sustainability initiatives successfully, but they lack the systematic approach to manage resources and talent, bridge gaps, to build sustainability as a business competency. Organizational sustainability management requires an effective business system that is capable of managing and sustaining energy efficiency. Sufficient data or information is crucial to dig through the new gold and implement sustainability initiatives. Whatever the activity to improve sustainability; the best way is to use the least resources and take the least time and still meet quality standards.

In management practice, the pressure of short-term earnings performance is at odds with the longer-term nature of sustainability. A fine-crafted sustainability strategy can be used to drive innovation efforts in the development of a holistic sustainability strategy; communicate what needs to be done down the line to the various functional domains responsible for unlocking sustainability potential of the business. Every organization should strive to explore the "best practices' ' throughout their organization to improve energy efficiency and scale up sustainability effects, orchestrate an energy-efficiency, sustainability-savvy, and resource-optimized modern organization.

Regular feedback is a must and incentives should be comparable to expectation set and engage more people as advocates in creating the sustainability momentum: Organizational leadership sets sustainability as a high priority, embed real, measurable, ongoing commitments to go beyond the immediate benefits of compliance, obligations, and efficiency, make incentives tied to performance on sustainability initiatives. It is a logical scenario of establishing a roadmap for sustainability management, using the data collected to motivate and impact sustainable change to reduce organizational energy footprint.

The incentives will increase the willingness of employees to give you those ideas upon improving business sustainability and supporting corporate goals, balance sustainability efforts with business demands to make an influence on the environment,improve business’s bottom line efficiency, orchestrate the energy-efficiency, sustainability-savvy, and resource-optimized modern organization.

Sustainability are cross-disciplinary efforts; sustainability innovation is the scalable way that can be learned and practiced. There is always an element of social benefits in any industry; it is for the organization and its promoters to draw the balance between social and commercial objectives. It’s also important to practice to orchestrate cross-disciplinary sustainability efforts, facilitate cross-functional communication, develop a comprehensive roadmap, optimize business processes, and take a structural effort to achieve measurable results.
