Efficiency & Effectiveness: Restructuring Corporate Sustainability within an Undisclosed Company
Repository Usage Stats
The Manager of Sustainability at an undisclosed company is responsible for integrating corporate responsibility into every branch of the business. However, as the sustainability department is located at the bottom of the company hierarchy, effective authority can be limited. Furthermore, the internal structure of the sustainability department is not organized for optimal productivity. In order to determine the appropriate internal structure and level of leadership for the sustainability department, this analysis conducted staff interviews, a literature review, a questionnaire, and a comparative analysis of peers in the Fortune 500 and primary competitors. Results determined that for optimum competitiveness, the structure of the sustainability department within the company should include nine new staff members, offer two additional tiers of managerial levels, and advance the Manager of Sustainability position to a higher managerial position within the company.
