可持续性的重要性

Everyone of us who lives on Earth has an equally important stake in the planet’s health. However, there is a small group of super corporations which have grown so big and dominant that they control the human industry and shape the modern world we live in. Some of their annual revenues eclipse the GDPs of developing countries.

It has also been reported that just 100 companies account for more than 70 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. With the collective, oversized influence, these handful of companies have on the fate of the whole planet; it is not surprising that the society at large is calling for them to help sort out the myriad of environmental challenges facing the world.

政府、非政府组织、公民、消费者和其他利益相关者都希望看到这些公司为他们的社区尽一份力。不这样做将意味着失去经营的社会许可,这将损害他们的财务底线。

然而,激励这些公司的不仅是社区中失去善意的大棒,而且还有许多胡萝卜可以在他们的公司中采用可持续实践。确保创造的财富不仅可以改善少数人的生活,而且可以改善每个人的生活,从而使所有人都能繁荣昌盛,生活在一个富有生物多样性的有弹性的星球上,这将符合地球的集体利益。

我们孩子的未来

Despite there being millions of galaxies, stars and planetary systems in the universe, there is only ONE habitable planet that we know of – Earth. As such, every one of us has a moral obligation not only to each other, but especially to our future generations, and other species which share our home, to keep the planet in the best shape possible. The choices we make and actions we take will impact the lives of future generations. If we exhaust the resources of the Earth, future generations will be made to suffer. For instance, overfishing not only runs the risk of depleting the supply of fish, but will also significantly impact the supply of every organism in the food chain related to that fish, causing the ecosystem to break down.

转向可再生能源

改用太阳能和风能等可再生能源,搭配更节能的设备,可以减少每月的水电费,从而提高能源效率,并帮助公司提高整体效率。可再生能源对环境也更清洁、更友好。可持续发展还可以改善与政府和当地社区的关系,甚至可以使公司有资格获得一些税收优惠和补贴。

干净的环境

Cleaner water and air quality, reduced landfills from reduction in wastage and increased dependence on renewable energy sources – all these are potential positives from a change to a sustainable policy. The reduction in our carbon footprint as well as the amount of toxins released into the environment, making the air we breathe much cleaner and lessening the effects of global warming.

提升品牌价值

千禧一代是迄今为止人口最多的一代,他们特别关注环境影响,他们的后代也是如此。因此,企业可以通过利用新一代的社会意识来显着提升其品牌价值。许多具有前瞻性思维的公司已经将可持续发展作为其企业文化和商业模式的一部分,这可以转化为他们持久的竞争优势。

满足不断变化的消费者需求

消费者青睐支持可持续发展的公司的趋势不断变化,确保随波逐流的公司获得更好的财务业绩。那些不改变政策以适应消费者不断变化的心态和价值观的公司将被抛在后面。

吸引人才

As sustainability becomes a top priority when considering a potential employer, it also helps to attract talent. Many new job-seekers have cited taking a job because of the company’s sustainability, and some are even foregoing higher pay elsewhere to work at an environmentally responsible company. The company’s reputation for sustainability would not only serve to attract quality employees, but will also serve to retain and keep their employees motivated as they will see more value in the contribution in what the company is doing.

创造新机会

强有力的可持续性主张可以帮助公司在进入新市场或向现有市场扩张时抢先一步,特别是因为许多政府已经拨出慷慨的预算来应对空气污染和其他环境问题。最能利用这些新机会的公司将是那些专注于未来可持续发展的公司。
