Short description: Guidance for managing sustainable development is designed to enable organisations to develop an approach to sustainable development that will continue to evolve and adapt to meet new challenges and demands. It illustrates how improvements in sustainable development can be achieved through strengthening relationships, enhancing internal cohesion, developing trust, stimulating learning and understanding and managing risks and opportunities within an organization. The new standard is based on building learning and developing decision-making frameworks in organizations to make them more sustainable. The standard sets out the outcomes an organization should achieve rather than processes it should follow and provides a means for identifying the maturity of an organization's sustainability so that its current position can be measured and progress charted.
