When you think of business stakeholders, do you picture company founders, investors, and stockholders in a board room determining the fate of the company?  Do you see a gathering of employees fully engaged in the direction of the company being laid out by the company leaders?  In addition to these critical engagements, there are a number of other business that affect business sustainability. 

A company's external stakeholder relationships are often just as critical to business sustainability.  These often overlooked role-players can have a huge impact on business success.  Identifying and actively managing these engagements can be a huge differentiator from the competition.
“A commitment to sustainability recognizes that our company is not measured by financial results alone. We must also be responsible stewards of the environment and responsive to the changing expectations of our stakeholders.”  – Jim Rodgers, Duke Energy
As a sustainability consultant, I advise businesses to evaluate their stakeholder touch-points.  Moving stakeholder engagement forward in product design and development can reduce cost and add value.
