Sustainability can make good business sense, because it can originate extensive and positive environmental and social impacts in medium long term, as well as have significant implications for both global and local economies, as well as for international and national financial markets.
The present idea of making business more sustainable should not be considered the latest corporate “fashion trend” in business development strategy and organizational change management, but as an issue that cannot be postponed and as a “moral imperative” for all those, who are willing to preserve business and social growth and their long-term survival.
Without a growing and secure world-wide economy, stable international currencies and markets and reliable investments, there is no successful business and “healthy” society, neither a “safe” place to live for any human being, and no preserved natural resource and environment for next generations.
For these reasons a “sustainable business” should implement both environmentally friendly and socially responsible commercial practices and industrial processes, whilst continuing to ensure high economical performance through transparency in business management and corporate governance.
Only those businesses, resolute enough to become “genuinely sustainable” – from the economical, environmental and social perspectives – would acquire the all necessary sustainability leadership and capabilities to take a successful long term approach towards sustainable development.
Adopting a “systematic sustainable approach” can considerably help improve performance and profitability through lower costs, better stakeholder engagement, additional competitive advantage and process innovation, as well as shift to a more resource efficient, low carbon and green economy, and a more socially responsible society.
Developing a business more sustainably in the medium long term can help control national and international financial risks and better respond to any further economical crisis, improve brand image and corporate reputation, create new business opportunities, and foster positive social chance.
That’s why to create a successful strategic approach towards sustainability, and continue growing indefinitely, businesses have to find always new efficient and cost effective ways to help minimize their environmental and social impacts, and ensure their financial stability.
