Do corporations really believe in sustainability?

I believe the jury is still out! We are a long wait away from sustainability thinking achieving a semblance of seriosuness and sensitivy. Few Pointers:
– management does not begin the day with discussing sustainability and profits together, the two are still disjoint and severly disconnected. – a corporation’s approach to working with not-for-proft partners still hinges squarely on charity, making the NGOs more dependent on a non-sustainable donor driven future.
– Poverty alleviation, micro economic activity, livelihood generation, environment protection thus become inmpossible to tackle since the system is pitched aginst them.
– Ditto, many other social issues.
