A Thought for The Week
We like to say that Corporate Responsibility is about ‘beyond compliance’. What about sustainability ?
Earlier this week in preparation for my panel at GreenGov I re-read the President’s Executive Order on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance (aka sustainability).
The cl0sing paragraph Section 20 para (c) reads “This order is intended only to improve the internal management of the Federal Government and is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforcable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person. ” BARACK OBAMA The White House Oct0ber 5th 2009
So its official, by Presidential Order. Sustainability is about ‘beyond compliance’ too !
