Sustainable business management means building value, promoting trust, and facilitating action.
IMA is the home of professionals who are building resilient sustainable businesses focused on resource preservation, performance, and value creation.
Resources must be managed in a way that sustains and builds value for all stakeholders that contribute to an organization. Business professionals bring the skills and capabilities to lead the global transition to deliver on environmental, social, and governance aspects of performance and value – delivering profits with purpose.
Regardless of where an individual sits in business, these endeavors find foundation in the IMA Competency Framework. Along with ESG reporting and reporting and control, we emphasize business strategy, partnering, cross-disciplinary collaboration, technology, and leadership based on a strong commitment to ethics.
Sustainable Business Management Advocacy
Our community was founded in 2020 as a CEO task force to fill a critical need in the sustainable business arena: the perspective and needs of professionals in business who are leading the way on actually bringing about business sustainability in a meaningful way. With quick success, and led by our IMA Sustainable Business Management Committee, we expanded to invite the participation of members with different roles to our professional community.
Here is the video of how we started, and why we're offering something different:
