It's practicalbeing is not yet implemented or is partially implemented.The capital base of an organization is quite critical that its protection sets the acceptability of thebusiness to be high. For the organizations to recognize this, they need to extend the notion ofprotecting its capital base to the natural and the human resources of the world. For the whole ideato be regarded as sustainable business development, there is need value the development of thesurrounding resources too (Robinson & Dale, 1996).The systems of an organization ought to be planned and measured systematically if the enterpriseis to achieve its potential. There is need to integrate all these items. For a good integration to takeplace, there is a need for the knowledge about the business leaders (Robinson & Dale, 1996). Allthe activities and strategies that are adopted by the organization for it to attain its goals is what isregarded as its development (Lopez, 2008). The resources that will be needed by the giveorganization to reach its targets will be needed in future.Therefore, for the sustained development, there must be a spirit of originality upon theenterprise’ resources as defined by the environmental and developmental commission.

The outcome of this itemmay become a trade-off between a healthy environment and on the other hand, healthy growth.This issue adds up to what IKEA business organization finds it difficult to progress.For IKEA to be sustainable for both the environment and the socially, it needs to stick to certainforms of developments that are seen to be supportive. The result of sticking to such forms is anassurance of environmental improvement and considerable absence of trade-offs. Sustainabledevelopment that is being strived for by the business is all about the absence of trade-offs andenvironmental improvement. It must be the one to drag down the environmental value.Protection of the environment, the well-being of the social being and the economic developmentare the elements that IKEA should find positive approaches to meet.
