For Doppelt (2003), the ultimate key to organisations successfully embracing sustainability is leadership. Sound leadership leads to dialogue, which in turn can lead to change. Leadership commitment to sustainability would encourage this focus on change assist in breaking down barriers to achieving sustainability – barriers such as tunnel vision, past practice, old ideas and cultural frameworks that together combine to discourage new visions of the future. As Doppelt suggests, these ingrained ideas often reside in the organisational culture, in policies and procedures, so the development and strategic nurturing of an alternate vision for the future, driven by committed management and leadership, is paramount.
