Bringing a sustainable future into our grasp relies upon the successful execution of thousands of well-conceived projects. Project management and project leaders are critical in achieving more sustainable practices. Executives must provide them with more flexibility in managing projects, moving past the traditional “iron triangle” of project management — managing time, budget, and quality. Sustainability cannot be achieved simply through rigid planning and traditional project targets. Project managers must be unleashed to reach these goals innovatively. CEOs should empower a new kind of sustainability-focused project manager to lead organizational transformation. The Project Management Office (PMO) can play an important role when analyzing new project ideas. It should develop new guidelines for sponsors and managers to increase the focus of their projects on such sustainable outcomes and benefits.

Since then, it has grown considerably, with many standards being developed, training & consulting organizations set up and information disseminated among many industries and domains.

Those problems are often referred to as Grand Challenges. The climate crisis is a prime example of a Grand Challenge with an increasing urgency that needs to be addressed if societies around the world are to survive and prosper.

Sustainable project practices are about more than “being green”. Sustainability requires that we look beyond the scope, schedule, and budget of the temporary project and consider the larger “Triple Bottom Line” that projects operate within. The triple bottom line evaluates performance in a broader perspective considering economic, ecological, and social impacts otherwise known as the 3Ps - Profit, Planet, People. As the agents of change in organizations, Project Managers, are uniquely positioned to identify and lead the change that impacts your “Triple Bottom Line” while creating greater business value.
