Sustainability is both means and end. Operational sustainability can be seen and used as a means to achieving top level business goals (ends) such as lower costs, higher profitability, more customer satisfaction and higher sales. In this respect, sustainability is just like other key operational objectives such as reducing delivery cycles. Delivering faster and more reliably than competitors serves the higher objective of increasing business, but this isn’t going to happen unless someone in the organization focuses squarely on increasing speed. Similarly, someone must focus squarely on sustainability as an end in order to achieve the greatest business benefits.
