Project Management is essentially about change. By altering the way we view the delivery of projects, we can realize a global system that preserves its natural resources, positively impacts society, and strengthens the global economy.  Organizations are embracing corporate social responsibility and their business practices are changing to adopt new models.  By applying a framework of sustainable methods which align with international standards, organizational goals, and ethics at the micro level, project management can deliver greater value at the macro level. GPM’s goal, and the purpose of this guidebook, is to evolve the discipline of project management and to improve delivery capability without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.  

The approach embraces current standard working practices with a focus on five key areas known as P5™ or the “Ps” to sustainable project management.  The P5™ focus areas are integrated through PRiSM, PRojects integrating Sustainable Methods.  The establishment of this method, which formulates the steps to success through an increased awareness of the eco-environmental, financial, and societal impacts project processes and resulting products has on project outcome, allows companies to scale their commitment to change by understanding their own constraints, from a project perspective, and aligning it with the overall organizational strategy.

Sustainability starts with Project Management!
