When we think of sustainability, we immediately think of the environment. And rightly so, given that we’re under pressure to reach Net Zero by 2030 and tackle climate change.
However, being a sustainable business involves more than this: it’s a 360°-degree topic which affects every area of your business: your people, the local community, your fixtures and fittings, your supply chain, and the list goes on. Improving operational efficiency will also help your sustianability efforts as you waste less, use less energy and make the maximum use of your resources.
Customers are now more sensitive towards Corporate Social Responsibility, and they will support brands that are striving for a more sustainable future.
Governments are increasingly imposing legally binding targets on companies to tackle climate change. Heavy fines have already been issued in some industries. So, our sector could face financial penalties for failing to address this in the near future.
However, your brand reputation could be at risk if you fail to implement and demonstrate your sustainability initiatives. Customers are increasingly voting with their feet.
Essentially, your long-term business sustainability largely depends on looking after your people and the wider local communities where you operate. By nurturing a loyal workforce, supporting the wider local community and its environment, you are creating more stable foundations for your business to continue prospering in the future.
