In recent years we have seen a flurry of Sustainability Plans, such as the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, Walmart’s Sustainability 360, and PespiCo’s Performance with a Purpose, Marks and Spencers’ Plan A. While each Sustainability Plan is unique to the company, it is clear that behind many of the high profile initiatives there is a comprehensive set of measurable targets, ambitious goals, and attention to detail. The most powerful common attribute of successful plans is that they are instantly recognizable and act as a metaphor for a company’s sustainability goals and ambitions.
