Green Project Management (GPM)

GPM is a body of standards that embeds sustainability in all the stages of project management, right from conception of the project idea to monitoring and reporting. GPM is the bridge between projects and sustainability. It provides a clearly defined pathway to measure projects for sustainability across the triple bottom line of people, profit, and planet while delivering projects to time, scope, and budget.


Its importance

Sustainable project management is a rapidly growing discipline. With changing expectations of consumers and investors and the emergence of the millennial generations, organizations are actively incorporating socially responsible and environmentally friendly practices into their operating model. The discipline of project management is also under intense need to not only deliver but to do so in a way that does not create undue negative impacts on society, the economy and the environment. This definitely requires competent hands to implement their projects.

They are:

  • Principles for Sustainable Project Management.
