Definition of Sustainability (PESTEL)

What is the definition of sustainability and what is a PESTEL chart?

In the pursuit of sustainability, organizations need to be aware of the external factors that shape their environmental impact and long-term viability. PESTEL (Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental, and Legal) analysis, which is a powerful framework for sustainability planning, provides a comprehensive lens through which organizations can understand and respond to the critical macro-environmental forces affecting their sustainable practices.

Focusing on political, economic, social, technological, environmental, and legal factors, the PESTEL analysis enables companies to assess the opportunities and challenges arising from the dynamic sustainability landscape.
