Human activities in areas such as mining, deforestation, urban development and industrialization have created an adverse impact on environmental, social and economic stability of companies and countries. This paper will take an integrated and holistic approach to address these problems and focus on deriving the maximum value from a bundle of available resource to enhance sustainability. It would consider ‘Value-Stream analysis, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the business. This paper is aimed to address the financial, economic, social and environmental aspects at a macro level for achieving sustainability and enhance quality of life.
