What factors lead to the implementation and success of corporate sustainability programs and policies in public Further Education and Training Colleges (FET)? To find out, one may examine FET institutions' self-reported corporate sustainability initiatives. Data were collected through surveys and interviews with council members and college principals at colleges in Gauteng Province of South Africa. 128 council members participated in the survey. Eight principals at eight FET education institutions participated in interviews. Related literature showed that the quality of services on corporate sustainability provided by the college council is influenced by stakeholders, social justice, economic and corporate cultural factors. Findings revealed that involvement of stakeholders in sustainability planning processes created greater willingness to implement sustainability projects. Results also revealed that FET Council Boards should be effective change agents and must have the ability to visualise, verbalise, and set into motion clear, focused action plans related to corporate sustainability.
