|Sustainable Management Skills ....|
What managers can do.
It is relatively straightforward to work out what mangers could do.
The Sustainable Development Education Panel produced a Step by Step Guide for College to establish a Sustainability Management System. Abstract.
BSI have produced a BS 8900 Guidance for managing sustainable development. This new standard "will help advance the cause of sustainable development by making it easier to integrate into organizational processes, decision-making and behaviour”.
It is like an environmental management system, with the three strands of 'sustainablity' replacing the single 'environment'. Sustainability management systems can also contribute to outside sustainablity indicators.
Skills standards for sustainbility could be modelled on the MCI Environmental Management National Occupational Standards, altered as set out by the SDEP College Guide above.
