14 Dec CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY AND GREEN BUSINESS
How to Create a Culture of Sustainability in Your Business – We were asked to consider: Companies are moving to go greener – but how do you make the concept of sustainability stick and become a lasting watchword in a business? As we discovered, that means having to set clear, actionable, and measurable goals; get your workforce, executive team, and other stakeholders on board and aligned on vision; put green processes and procedures in place; and track/monitor all of these efforts. We were tapped to offer a guide to making sure sustainability becomes a lasting effort in your business, and ways to ensure it’s built into its DNA going forward.
Ways to Boost Your Bottom Line By Going Greener – Companies know that customers want sustainable solutions and that greener options are good for the environment – but many they may not be quite as aware of the many savings and cost-efficiencies to be enjoyed by adopting a more eco-conscious approach as well. By recognizing energy efficiencies, and rethinking about how they handle heating and cooling, as well as retooling day-to-day operations and common tasks to employ more green solutions and strategies, it’s possible to cut expenses significantly. Our team was hired to take a closer look at how to make the shift to sustainability add up.
Why Green Business is the Future – Reports and research overwhelming support the idea that (a) businesses now see sustainability as an imperative or way to stand out from the pack and (b) business leaders feel that they have a growing responsibility to lead the charge for green solutions. We were asked to consider why companies in every field should be making the shift towards more eco-conscious solutions, and just a few of the many benefits (cost savings, consumer goodwill, ability to help the planet, reduced energy consumption and carbon emission, etc.) to be enjoyed in doing so.
