Sustainability is the subject of many interesting and well meaning conversations and glossy airport lounge publications. However, to ensure that the principles of sustainable development help businesses to deliver improved profit, there are two challenges to overcome. Firstly, understanding what sustainable development is and second, turning the well meaning words into actions with clear objectives and returns. We will discuss specific examples of how this has been done and how good engineers can be the key to making it happen.
