Product Road Mapping: Responsible Business Practice for Small to Medium Enterprises

A product roadmap identifies the social and environmental impacts of a specific sector/product throughout the supply chain and then identifies areas for improvement, cross-participant opportunities, government responses and tools that can assist to increase responsible business practices.

The sectoral product road mapping resources were funded by a grant from the Federal Government, through Treasury, based at St James Ethics Centre to expand responsible business practice in Australia and launched mid- 2009.  Responsible business practices (also referred to as corporate responsibility) include a company's positive impact on society and the environment through its operations, products or services and through its interaction with key stakeholders such as employees, customers, investors, communities and suppliers.

The downloadable resources include:

  1. If this product could talk: Product road mapping and Responsible Business Practice for Small to Medium Enterprises -an overview of product roadmapping.
  2. Buildings – Roadmap of a Sustainable Building undertaken by the Total Environment Centre’s Green Capital Program
