Sustainable Business Strategies is a consultancy founded in 2005 by Andrew W. Savitz, author of The Triple Bottom Line and formerly a lead partner running PricewaterhouseCoopers’ sustainability consulting practice. We work with a wide range of organizations, including Fortune 100 companies and major non-profits, to develop and implement environmental, social, and economic sustainability strategies.
For businesses, sustainability is a powerful and defining idea: a sustainable corporation is one that creates profit for its shareholders while protecting the environment and improving the lives of those with whom it interacts. It operates so that its business interests and the interests of the environment and society intersect. A sustainable business stands an excellent chance of being more successful tomorrow than it is today, and remaining successful, not just for months or even years, but for decades or generations.
Increasingly, businesses are expected to find ways to be part of the solution to the world’s environmental and social problems. The best companies are finding ways to turn this responsibility into opportunity. We believe that when business and societal interests overlap, everyone wins.
Andy is currently working on revising his groundbreaking book, The Triple Bottom Line: How Today's Best-Run Companies are Achieving Economic, Social, and Environmental Success — And How You Can Too. The second edition is due out in November 2013. To see Andy in action, click here.
