Abstract

Sustainable development is of relevance in organizations. To gain performance benefits, sustainability principles must be integrated into the core processes of an organization, such as the project initiation process. To relate sustainability principles to the project initiation process, a process-related sustainability definition is applied in this paper and includes the following principles: economic, ecologic and social-oriented; short, mid and long term- oriented; local, regional, and global-oriented, as well as values-based. This conceptual paper discusses select project management standards, such as the International Competency Baseline (ICB), A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Projects in a Controlled Environment 2 (PRINCE2), and a project management approach for developing projects such as the Logical Framework Approach (LFA), to see how sustainability principles are considered. As a result of this paper, the potential for further developing globally recognized project management standards is discussed.
