Sustainability is a concept that streches far beyond a company's longevity. It encompasses management focused on three mutually reinforcing instances: company prosperity, the environmental quality of the systems that involve it, and the social equality of the communities it is inserted in.
Because they are so encompassing, the concepts of sustainability and responsible management have extrapolated the limits of philanthropy and gained importance in the philosophy, values and strategy of every company, in all its functions and scope. Seeking to further knowledge generation in dealing with such an attitude and bring responsible management ever closer to companies, FundaÃ§Ã£o Dom Cabral developed the Responsible Management for Sustainability program, and this year the program will be run for the fifth time.
Companies are live organisms that are linked by relationship networks. Their stakeholders prevailing interests - marketing, social or environmental - determine the nature of these relations and involve all the individuals in the organization in its management systems. This model, which is used throughout the program, is based on the Conscious Organization concept which, by means of Biosystem Thinking, seeks to perceive the organic and network reality of groups and their vital processes while paying attention to environmental changes and interferences. Through its six-year old Andrade Gutierrez Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Center, FundaÃ§Ã£o Dom Cabral has adopted this model as a reference and has developed research, case studies and new methodologies to enhance knowledge and apply it to organizations.
