Sustainability doesn't just happen...
Well maybe for nature it does, but for businesses it's another story. Sustainability is a journey. Creating a company that adds value both to customers and society takes understanding of what the impacts are, where they come from and most importantly a committment to find ways to minimize them. The current sustainability landscape is complicated and involves an array of stakeholders, from clients, suppliers, and employees, to government agencies, NGOs, and the communities along the supply chain.
Companies that embrace sustainability and make it a core value in their company culture are outperforming the competition. Their profits are going up, costs are going down, customers are more satisfied, and employees happier. Who doesn't want that?
