Sustainable Management Support Service
Building strategies and systems that enable Japanese companies to survive and thrive
Amid dizzying changes in the socioeconomic environment, previously unimaginable events are taking place in rapid succession. As this happens, new guidelines are being formulated in rapid succession, aimed at benefitting the entire world 20 or 30 years down the road. New rules are thus being put in place with which companies must comply. Those that respond promptly to these changes can see in the formulation of these new rules the seeds of innovation and stronger competitiveness. In doing so, they are discovering new business opportunities and enriching their risk management. While responding to numerous diverse variables, ABeam Consulting provides uniform services ranging from strategy formulation to implementation, seeking out sources of corporate value to strengthen competitiveness.
What is sustainable management?
In order to survive and thrive amid drastic socioeconomic change, a company must continuously generate value through innovation.
Sustainable management is the concept that makes this achievement possible. It means enabling a company to pursue its own core competency, continually taking a long-term view and understanding of the firm’s significance while boosting competitiveness, increasing corporate value and providing greater value.
This view is definitely nothing new to Japanese industry. In recent years, however, the UNGC, Paris Accord, SDGs and GRI*1 have been among numerous guidelines that have come out demanding corporate social responsibility. These have been added to the criteria by which institutional investors evaluate corporate value and select investments. Japanese companies face the urgent need to practice sustainable management to achieve the transparency that enables stakeholders the world over to understand them.
Distinguishing sustainable management from CSR
Since the 1990s, the domains of CSR and sustainability have undergone major changes. There are generally major differences between CSR and sustainable management in terms of scope of relevant activities, corporate responsibilities and modes of action.
Impression that sustainable management has been achieved
Many Japanese companies have achieved long-term sustainability in their business operations by continually giving due consideration to employees, local regions, society and associates. It is also a fact, however, that they have responded passively to the requirements of stakeholders and global initiatives. The result is that a number of unresolved issues remain with Japanese firms despite their belief that they have achieved sustainable management.
