We expect that companies and large associations will have to give even more priority to the theme of sustainability in the coming period, in all business units, not only to remain relevant and attractive, but also to show that you take responsibility and turn it into concrete actions.
The need for sustainability and being environmentally aware is becoming increasingly stronger, in line with the trend in society whereby the importance of sustainability is becoming more widely accepted. The consequences of global climate change, a direct result of our unsustainable use of resources, are now unmistakable. We increasingly realise that we all need to take responsibility and strive for a more sustainable life.
However, sustainability also offers opportunities for companies and organisations:
- The attractiveness of Corporate Social Responsibility for (potential) customers and suppliers;
- Cost reductions in the long term;
- The attractiveness of the organisation for current and future employees;
- The knowledge and feeling that comes with knowing that you are actively trying to make the world a better place.
