When it comes to creating innovative practices in an organization, sustainability is often an after-thought. But the truth is, sustainability is embedded in innovation processes.
How can we encourage individuals in organizations to make more sustainable choices?
Many decisions individuals make – from what food to buy to how much energy to use – involve sustainability related tradeoffs. Organizations, too, make sustainability decisions. Some decisions, such as where to site a new facility or how to manage a natural resource, can involve a range of interests and criteria and have significant implications for profits, the environment and society. To gain insight into how individuals can make better decisions, NBS conducted a systematic review of 207 articles from more than 60 years. The resulting report is designed to help individuals understand how they and their organizations can improve their decision-making processes to reach more sustainable outcomes.
- How do individuals make decisions regarding social and environmental issues?
- How can these individuals and organizations overcome inherent biases in the decision-making process?
- Which tools are available to help individuals reach the sustainable outcome?
