In a challenging economic environment, sustainability projects require more than reducing carbon footprint and environmental impact, contributing to your organization’s bottom line is a key requirement. Demonstrating the link between sustainability performance and financial performance is crucial to securing investment in sustainability programs.
Companies are starting to make this link by using potential cost savings to justify investments in sustainability programs. However, there are many other ways to demonstrate the business value of sustainability programs and strengthen the business case. For example, using fewer raw materials reduces dependence on unreliable supply chains and volatile commodity markets. Investing in climate change mitigation reduces the risk of extreme weather events disrupting the services or goods that companies provide. And modern plant and machinery is not only energy-efficient but also more reliable, ensuring more orders are fulfilled on time and improving customer satisfaction.
