Define a Sustainability Charter to set out the high level vision and objectives for corporate development at short, medium and long term.
Structure a Sustainability Framework to operationalise the company Sustainability Charter by identifying clear goals and objectives for the five sustainability themes, Governance, Production & Sales, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources. Each theme is implemented by a specific department to achieve clear result areas and targets identified by the very same framework.
The Sustainability Charter and Framework are included in the Sustainability Plan which also describes the process of integrating sustainability considerations into the project characteristics. Details actions, initiatives and recommendations to be implemented to achieve goals and objectives.
Consult the community with a multi-stakeholder approach to involve the all relevant groups, from shareholders, to staff,clients, suppliers and the all values chain. This process will help in highlighting sustainability issues of interest to key users groups as an important part of the sustainability assessment process.
A Stakeholders Assessment and Strategy is then included in this plan.
To enable the Sustainability Performances of the project to be assessed and reported on, a Sustainability Assessment approach is developed.
Appraise the sustainability goals and objectives incorporated within the Sustainability Framework, by identifying and documenting it. The Sustainability Performance Assessment Framework is based on measurable parameters and indicators identified specifically for the project, linked to the sector, industry and country where the project is based.
Write the Sustainability Report to describe how the project delivers on the objectives, goals and themes set out in the Sustainability Framework. The Sustainability Report can also certify the achieved result performances through the indicators measured by the Sustainability Assessment Framework.
Mitigation measures can then be effectively identified during the reporting period to be considered during the next stages of project if reviewing actions are needed.
