Sample text

Sustainability is about challenging our mental models, policies, and practices, not just about accommodating new considerations into current work or finding common ground between related programmes. It entails envisioning and accomplishing change rather than sustaining the status quo. All of these activities are value-based. Pioneering studies of executive roles identified the creation of morals for others as a key management task. Barnard (1938: 272) stated that responsibility for the development of an organization’s moral framework distinguishes managers from subordinates.

Donaldson and Preston (1995) point out that there is as yet no compelling empirical evidence that the optimal strategy for maximizing a firm’s conventional and market performance is stakeholder management. Similarly, regarding sustainability itself, more than a third of the managements of the companies in the World Business Council for Sustainable Development do not have much faith in the business case for sustainability and do not actively support the concept internally (Blackburn 2007: 7). This reflects what Hart (2007) calls the “Great Trade-Off Illusion” – the belief that companies must sacrifice financial performance to meet social obligations.

In contemporary working life – characterized by rapid changes, knowledgeintensive work, global competition, and social values emphasizing equality and human dignity – the sustainability of human and social resources is one of the foundations of economic sustainability. The sustainability of human resources at work is one of the foundations for social development and the sustainability of whole societies. The sustainability of human and social resources is needed to secure ecological sustainability, because only people and groups who operate sustainably are able to grasp, prioritize, and work toward ecological sustainability.
