What ability do many Sustainability leaders lack ?

I think when people ask what is sustainable they take the answer from top 10 lists or their own experience. Now a lot of experience means you may know a lot but I believe that very few people know how to identify sustainable actions themselves. There is a lot of received wisdom and not enough knowledge about how to determine what is sustainable. This is important for a leader because they need to lead others to do the same. 

For this reason my small initiative called “Not another Sustainability Group” is working with select individuals to build a “Sustainable Concept model” to guide a methodology, not unlike Total Quality management and other methodologies. I intend it to be placed in the public domain.

I believe this is such a compelling way for people to address their triple bottom line in an innovative way it is now my primary focus.

That what is missing from most sustainability leaders – The ability to identify what is sustainable from basic principals.
