Sustainable Business

3 Reasons Why Sustainability Drives Business Success

Sustainability has become one of the key topics of the 21st century. However, this subject is not a short-lived buzzword, it is a glimpse into the future of corporate profitability and consumer relations.

Are your customers expecting sustainable options from your business?

If so, now is the time to act to avoid consumers favouring your more eco-conscious competitors. Sustainability speakers are leading experts on this topic, as they supply a toolbox of tips for corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

Discover the top three benefits of sustainability in business, in our latest article:

Meet Consumer Expectations

With 76% of consumers expecting companies to care about climate change and 75% willing to pay more for sustainable products, more customers than ever are acting with their wallets. This global shift indicates the “green” power of greener business, as companies who supply eco-alternatives are likely to become future market leaders.

From recyclable packaging to ethical manufacturing, consumer expectations in the 21st century are worlds apart from previous decades – businesses who do not change with the times will be left behind.

Discover what your business must do to increase sustainability and appeal to consumers with a sustainability speaker like Sally Uren.


Save Money, Work Greener

Though renewable energy alternatives require an initial investment; they lead to long-term savings. In a study by EnergySage, solar panels can result in a 75% reduction in energy bills for commercial properties, indicating the financial benefits for businesses.

Additionally, excess energy can be sold back to the National Grid, so some businesses may make a profit from renewable alternatives. As fossil fuels deplete, companies must prepare for a sustainable future today, to avoid the impending energy crisis.

Want to embrace renewable energy but do not know where to start? Hire an energy speaker like former IKEA President, Göran Carstedt.


Appeal to ESG Investors

ESG investing includes a set of vital criteria that businesses must meet to be deemed sustainable enough for financial support. From gender diversity and equal pay to renewable energy and recycling, such criteria impact a company’s entire supply chain.

With an estimated value of $30 trillion and growing, ESG investing is both a financial opportunity for businesses and essential for saving the planet. It also improves your brand image, as consumers are drawn to companies that align with their personal passion for global sustainability.
