New Organisation Sustainability Maturity Matrix

Insync has partnered with Dr. Sugumar Mariappanadar of Australian Catholic University to develop a new Organisation Sustainability Maturity Matrix that can be used by any observer to determine the level of sustainability maturity of any organisation. The maturity matrix provides much needed insight for organisations in order to help them develop sustainability plans, including corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, to create long-term value.

The new maturity matrix includes 4 levels from Level 0 which has been designated as “Oblivious” through to level 3 which is the highest level and is titled, “Holistic”. The matrix has five dimensions. Organisations can be at different levels on the different dimensions and can also exhibit attributes of different maturity levels on the same dimension as their organisation evolves.

The maturity matrix draws on Insync’s governance, sustainability and stakeholder research and the practical advice provided to numerous clients over almost 20 years, combined with the experience of internationally acclaimed Dr Mariappanadar who has more than 30 years of sustainable work practices research, consultancy, and teaching experience in Australia and overseas. Dr. Mariappanadar has over 45 research publications in the field of management and sustainable work strategies and practices and authored, Sustainable Human Resource Management: Strategies, Practices and Challenges, published by Macmillan International, London (2019).

Insync and Dr Mariappanadar have developed a framework for an Organisation Sustainability Transformation Plan that helps organisations move up one or more levels in the Sustainability Maturity Matrix. The plan recognises that to exhibit improved sustainability maturity for social legitimacy there must be a transformation of the organisation from the inside. The transformation plan sets out the organisational prerequisites for and the internal drivers of sustainability.

The six prerequisites of organisational sustainability are sound governance, transparent stakeholder management, visionary leadership, alignment, internal monitoring and external reporting. Insync and Dr Mariappanadar catalogue and measure the current state, the desired future state and a plan to transform an organisation in relation to each of the internal drivers of sustainability.
