What is included?
This module follows the steps of the ITIL continual improvement model. This is because sustainability activities should form a continuous journey, rather than being a one-off initiative. For each step, the book explains the key sustainability concepts, describes applicable methods and models and provides guidance on their application in the context of digital technology.
Step 1: What is the vision?
In the first step, organizations define their vision for sustainability, ensuring that it is aligned with the overall business vision and supports the widely accepted sustainable development goals, the UN SDGs. Organizations review and reconsider their guiding principles and may amend them using the UN Global Compact principles for sustainability as guidance.
Step 2: Where are we now?
The second step provides a good understanding of the organization’s internal and external context. This is achieved by various forms of assessment, including materiality assessment, risk assessments, stakeholder analysis, and mapping. The results of the assessments inform the following steps.
Step 3: Where do we want to be?
In the third step, organizations define, agree, and communicate their sustainability objectives. The objectives address the material topics identified via the materiality assessment and support the agreed sustainability vision.
Step 4: How do we get there?
In the fourth step, organizations plan a portfolio of initiatives to achieve the agreed objectives. Together with the third step, this step results in the creation of a sustainability strategy and supporting tactical and operational plans. In many cases, these plans are based on, or enabled by, digital technology.
Step 5: Take action
The fifth step provides readers with tools and approaches needed to implement their sustainability plans in today’s volatile, complex, uncertain, and ambiguous business environment. Along with recommendations for addressing complexity (based on the Cynefin framework), this chapter explains how various ITIL management practices support the organization’s sustainability journey.
Step 6: Did we get there?
In the sixth step, organizations review and report their progress and achievements. Together with ITIL-based recommendations for measurements and reporting, this chapter introduces sustainability-driven approaches to corporate reporting, such as the integrated reporting framework.
Step 7: How do we keep the momentum going?
The seventh step enables the continual nature of the sustainability journey. This is where drivers such as governance, collaboration, and innovation help organizations maintain the direction and the momentum to achieve the sustainability objectives and get closer to the agreed sustainability.
