This chapter will illustrate how systems thinking can contribute to understanding, communicating and addressing sustainability issues in management. It will also familiarise you with the main concepts used in systems thinking which might facilitate further research.

As the business world is inherently linked to all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), thinking systemically and using systems diagrams can make an important contribution towards achieving them (see Chapter 5, Figure 1 for the link between the UN Global Compact, PRME and the SDGs).

Systemic thinking can also contribute towards the PRME Working Group on Developing a Sustainability Mindset (see Chapter 5, Table 2, and Chapter 9). Additional pointers will be provided in the following sections.
