What is sustainability?
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is an EU ESG (environmental social governance) standard passed by European Union Council on November 28, 2022. Sustainability in business refers to a company’s ability to operate in a way that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This involves balancing economic, social, and environmental considerations in business decisions and operations.
From an economic perspective, sustainability in business means ensuring long-term profitability and competitiveness by managing risks and identifying opportunities associated with environmental and social issues. This can include investments in renewable energy, resource efficiency, and product innovation.
From a social perspective, sustainability in business means considering the impact of business operations on stakeholders such as employees, customers, and the local community. This can include promoting diversity and inclusion, ensuring safe and healthy working conditions, and supporting community development programs.
From an environmental perspective the considerations involve preserving natural resources and ecosystems, reducing the carbon footprint, and minimizing environmental impact.
From an ethical perspective, a company’s responsibility is to reduce its negative impact on the environment and society. This includes reducing waste, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as improving working conditions and supporting human rights.
Why implement sustainability?
Sustainability is a vital focus for companies today, driven by ethical responsibility, environmental preservation, social well-being, economic benefits, and investor preference. By reducing waste, emissions, and promoting better working conditions, businesses create positive change, enhance brand value, and access new markets. With sustainability as a guiding principle, companies are shaping a brighter future for all stakeholders. Intellus will give you a picture of where you are. It will help you to take the best decisions.
When implement sustainability?
Sustainability can be implemented in a company at any stage of its development. It is important for companies to consider sustainability from the very beginning, as it can help them operate more efficiently and effectively in the long run. However, even if a company has been operating for many years without a focus on sustainability, it is never too late to start implementing sustainable practices.
