The concept of sustainability has grown in recognition and importance. Companies are feeling pressure to broaden their reporting and accountability from economic performance for shareholders to sustainability performance for all stakeholders. This is leading to a change of mindset in consumer behavior and corporate policies. How can we develop prosperity without compromising the life and needs of future generations?

Sustainability relates to multiple perspectives—economic, environmental and social—but also to responsibility and accountability and values in terms of ethics, fairness and equality. Sustainability in Project Management explores and identifies the questions surrounding the integration of sustainability in projects and project management and provides valuable guidance and insights. The authors will inspire project managers to be aware of these considerations and to apply them to the role they play in projects: Not just “doing things right” but “doing the right things right.”
