Sustainability is the capacity to endure. APQC's definition for sustainability focuses on these primary components:
- environmental practices that protect natural resources needed by future generations,
- people practices that ensure workers within the organization are kept safe and treated equitably,
- social practices that promote community development and human rights for people beyond the organization, and
- governance, management, and financial practices that promote ethical operations and long-term organizational health.
