Consideration is given to achieving organisational sustainability through a holistic, integrated and multi stakeholders’ participative approach. The notion of “optimizing production processes” to achieve sustainability is not sufficient since most of the unsustainable processes are found outside the certified manufacturing facility. Achieving sustainability requires a holistic consideration of business processes along the whole supply chain as well as the management systems. Conventional tools and techniques to integrate sustainability in business processes have environmental connotations and thus fail to encompass all aspects of sustainability. This paper proposes a framework that addresses sustainability at three frontiers which are life cycle analysis, operational excellence, and integration of management systems.
