Worth the effort?
Wim and Bart came to the conclusion that there are lots of reasons why becoming more sustainable will help your business – environmental, social and financial. Let’s take a brief tour to help you understand what it’s all about:
What is sustainability?
In the true sense of the word, sustainability means ‘the capacity to endure’. In business, that means you’re in it for the long haul. It means setting up a business that will be resilient and will thrive in the long term.
What is a sustainable business?
A sustainable business is one that generates profit while improving societal and environmental conditions. This includes what you do (your product or service) as well as how you do it (the way you operate).
How will being sustainable benefit your business?
There are lots of ways in which being more sustainable will help your business. It will help you become more efficient, improve your brand value and reputation, provide a platform for innovation, help attract and retain staff, achieve better growth, cut costs and strengthen stakeholder relations.
The results of becoming a sustainable company are worth the efforts.
If we look at our planet, now is the time to act
