|The Sustainable Business Council (SBC) is a CEO led group of companies that catalyses the New Zealand business community to have a leading role in creating a sustainable future for business, society and the environment.|
•We promote eco-efficiency, innovation and responsible entrepreneurship.
•We want New Zealand businesses to be regarded by their customers worldwide as leaders in sustainable practice.
•Sustainable business in New Zealand improves economic prosperity, develops people in workplaces, enhances our environment, and strengthens communities without compromising future generations. It aspires to optimise financial, social and natural capital.
The Sustainable Business Council is focused on:
Business Leadership – being the leading business advocate on issues connected with sustainability.
Best practice – providing a forum for our members to work through challenges and share best practice on sustainability issues. This enables us to demonstrate business progress in environmental and corporate social responsibility and to share leading – edge practices.
International connectedness – providing early access to the latest trends, developments and resources through our partnership with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and involvement in international forums such as the Business and Industry Advisory Group to the OECD (BIAC) and the International Labur Organisation (ILO).
Mainstreaming sustainable business practice in NZ – working through the BusinessNZ network to mainstream sustainable business thinking, processes and practices.
Policy development – participating in policy development for a framework that allows business to contribute effectively to sustainable development.

|At Deloitte, we know from experience that being good is good for business. But these days sustainability has a much broader meaning than ‘going green’ – it’s about the long-term viability of your enterprise from every angle. By assessing the impact of your business from social, economic and environmental points of view, we can help improve the sustainability of your organisation. |
