· Sustainable development
For the business enterprise, sustainable development means adopting business strategies and activities that meet the needs of the enterprise and its stakeholders today while protecting, sustaining and enhancing the human and natural resources that will be needed in the future.
This definition captures the spirit of the concept as originally proposed by the World
Commission on Environment and Development, and recognizes that economic
development must meet the needs of a business enterprise and its stakeholders, including shareholders, lenders and customers.
Our objective is to facilitate business-led enterprise solutions to poverty in advancement of the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). These enterprise solutions accelerate and sustain access by the poor to much needed goods and services; and/or employment and livelihoods opportunities.
RSS business initiatives engage the private sector in innovative partnerships grounded in market-based incentives. Business-led enterprise solutions to poverty are challenging and are often perceived as representing unquantifiable risk and additional costs to business, causing potentially interested investors to place opportunities on the “too complicated” pile. The value proposition of RSS to business is to help address these challenges at relevant points in the investment cycle and thus reduce the risks and costs associated with the investment.
RSS is dedicated to implement projects and provide products globally that sustain and benefit the environment. Our business is committed to the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, economic and social.
