chapter  7
Developing Effective Management Systems
Pages 16

When you implement sustainability or any other corporate initiative, you need a way of setting priorities, monitoring progress and reviewing the overall success of the effort. This process is often referred to as a ‘management system’. This chapter will help you to examine the ways in which you currently manage initiatives and adapt them to include sustainability. We will show you how to evolve towards more mature and sophisticated processes for managing your sustainability initiative, what we are calling a sustainability management system (SMS).
