Executive Report


Business has contributed to the problem of unsustainable development, but it is also critical to its solution. This executive report helps practitioners move their organizations towards solutions through better planning.

The report identifies three key questions to help business leaders select a planning approach:

  1. How complex is the problem?
  2. What are our underlying beliefs?
  3. How active do we want to be in influencing societal change?

About the Research

This report is an extension of a larger systematic review prepared by Dr Martina Linnenluecke, Associate Professor Martie-Louise Verreynne, Dr Retha de Villiers Scheepers, Mr Sarel Grönum, and Ms Chanel Venter. The research team reviewed 196 leading academic and industry sources from 1950 to 2014 on how businesses can engage in strategic planning that is linked to a shared vision for a sustainable future.

Read the comprehensive systematic review.
