Sustainability emerged from the need to protect and ensure our environment, our society and our economic system assumes responsibility and works to cause as little harm as possible.

Since then, awareness and the application of sustainable practices have been on the rise.This book will include the background information needed to fully understand sustainability management systems and their integration into businesses.

I strongly believe in the positive impact it provides and in the added value that it enables for all. Sustainability does not have to be complicated, expensive or unrelated to the business activity. The numerous benefits its incorporation provides to all types of companies are always worth the journey.In the end, the main goal of sustainability, in my humble opinion, is to do & use business as a force for good.
