The sustainability skew

Sustainability is an emerging field, defining organisational success beyond profit. However, in current business and organisations, social sustainabilityparticularly human sustainability within the workplace, is less prominent than environmental sustainability in terms of research and public and business interest. This is significant, as theoretical exploration and research informs discussion, organisational management and policy debate. In this review, we explore why the physical environment is put centre stage, and seemingly considered to be more important than people. Explanations for the current disparity are attributed to a lack of shared meaning, engagement with reality, visibility and ideology. Addressing these drivers for disparity can also pave the way for a more fundamental paradigm shift when it comes to sustainability for business.
