Sustainability, sustainable development and social responsibility are related terms.

Social responsibility includes an organization’s responsibility for the impact of its decisions and activities on society, the environment and economy, and, therefore, its contribution to sustainable development and sustainability.

A recent ISACA Journal article,“The Time for Sustainable Business Is Now: Leveraging COBIT 5 in Sustainable Businesses,” presents what COBIT® 5 can do for sustainability, including:

  • Improve governance. COBIT® 5 ensures that all stakeholders are identified and their needs are evaluated in order to determine the enterprise’s sustainability goals and its associated IT-related goals.
  • Improve measurement, monitoring and evaluation systems. COBIT 5 uses indicators and can adopt the existing sustainable development indicators as management tools at various levels and in various sectors in order to improve environmental monitoring and information systems at different scales.
  • Assess the roles of public and private actors. COBIT 5 recognizes different stakeholders with different needs and obligations.
  • Increase the resilience of human and natural systems. COBIT 5 suggests stakeholder needs related to sustainability and, thus, allows the use of its goals cascade to ensure the identification of enterprise goals and the evaluation of possible risk that can hurt their achievement. So, the implemented IT process will be capable of delivering outcomes even if the risk factors materialize and the conditions are not the best.

This article focuses on the COBIT 5 processes for governance of enterprise IT (GEIT) and proposes how governance practices and activities can be adapted to balance IT with environmental, social and economic aspects.
