The 2012 IPMA Congress made a big thing of sustainability this year, which is very encouraging. The presentations, some of which will be available in the near future on SCOPUS, covered research results and case studies as well as tools and methods, all of which aligned to demonstrate the need, benefits, and practical nature of integrating sustainable methods with project delivery from a social, economic, environmental, process and product/service perspective. They are promising an expanded sustainability stream for 2013 in Dubrovnik. Gower authors, Gilbert Silvius and Ron Schipper (authors of Sustainability in Project Management) were amongst the presenters at this year’s event.

Take a look at Ian Chamber’s Planet in a Pickle song; here’s a serious business person who’s not afraid to engage the future generations in the business sustainability message. Hat’s off to you, Ian! Ian Chambers is co-author of Plan for the Planet.
