A study by Accenture and UN Global Compact in 2010 found that CEOs believe execution of their corporate sustainability strategies is now the real challenge. Sustainability is yet to permeate all elements of core business – into capabilities, process and systems, and training and performance frameworks. Yet this is where SKM is excelling.
SKM is embedding sustainability throughout the business, with programs and initiatives influencing training, communications, business systems and procedures, KPIs and importantly, projects with clients. In the past 12 months, SKM has entered a new phase on our sustainability journey, with its Sustainability by Design toolkit reaching further and having a greater impact than ever before. SKM's sustainability practitioners have taken this structured, repeatable process into projects across the globe generating outcomes that go beyond “business as usual” to deliver smarter, more sustainable solutions to clients’ problems. The unique approach is helping clients translate their sustainability policies into practice. Three examples of SKM's work with clients include Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Roads, Wellington City Council and Xstrata.
Central to its corporate purpose and as one of four core strategies, SKM’s commitment to sustainability is unwavering. Gaining momentum with the Sustainability by Design toolkit and working closely with clients, SKM will continue to embed the principles of economic, social and environmental sustainability into projects to deliver a positive enduring impact on the world.
