HR is one of the main drivers of Corporate Sustainability. Sustainability is a strategic capability. It also reflects the character of an organization. Building the capability and character of an organization is an important focus area of HR given its Organizational Development (OD) role. More than just an active supporter and participant in Sustainability initiatives, HR's role is now more strategic. HR is the lead Driver of Sustainability Culture.
