These sustainable business innovations consider the imperative question of what it means to have an initiative and consider its long-term implications -- and not just when it comes to profit. In this case, sustainability means something like considering the following questions. What does your organization do to the environment, both today and tomorrow? Will your organization be able to continue without its founder, CEO or co-founder? That is to say, is it beyond the key people? Will your organization create positive social change?

While this may seem like big and impossible questions (and to some extent, they are), these sustainable business innovations show you that no matter what, they're up for the challenge. And sometimes trying is all it really takes.
