Sustainability in the Workplace: A New Approach for Advancing Worker Safety and Health


The three pillars of environment, society, and economy are frequently used to model how sustainability can be incorporated into an organization’s mission, goals, and practices. The “three Venn” diagram is a well-recognized visualization of these pillars. Each of the pillars is considered essential for sustainable outcomes to be achieved. To date, the environmental community has effectively leveraged the sustainability movement to advance improvements in environmental outcomes, such as resource usage and emissions reductions, through increased awareness, the establishment of a collective vision, investment in innovations, and promotion of transparency.
