Sustainability is good business
Sustainability = Resource efficiency
Business sustainability is about using resources efficiently. A sustainability plan takes account of environmental, community and financial aspects of resource management.
So, while it's important to use energy wisely and avoid degrading the environment, it's also important to look after your team and other stakeholders in the business.
Sustainability = Risk Management
Climate change could have a devastating effect on the global economy in the future. Pricing carbon will provide a lever to change consumer behaviours. Businesses who start an action plan to reduce their reliance on carbon now will have an excellent price advantage over those who don't.
A baseline assessment of an organisation's sustainability is an excellent way of getting started and provides a report which outlines both risks and opportunities.
