A strategic planning tool for boards and management, Integrated Thinking Principles help embed sustainable business practices into an organisation and provide a foundation for long-term value creation. The principles—Purpose, Strategy, Risks and Opportunities, Culture, Governance and Performance—are designed to be embedded into an organisation’s business model and applied across important activities overseen by its board and its senior management team.

The principles are interconnected and each has three implementation levels: 

  • Level 1—comprises questions to the board and CEO on how widely each principle has been adopted across the organisation.
  • Level 2—offers the opportunity to consider statements that test how deeply the principles have been embedded into the organisation.
  • Level 3—consists of management tools, practices and processes to help an organisation to apply integrated thinking.
