Rooted in ideology, sustainable business practices have evolved into full fledged growth strategies. Moving from a moral obligation to new opportunities for generating business. Sustainability has become an integral part of regular business strategies. And, at the same time, it offers the possibility to improve the financial performance of a company.
Deloitte believes that solely organizations with a sustainable business strategy will gain a competitive edge in the long run. So, sustainability is inextricably linked to innovation. Deloitte assists corporations, both with mapping this strategy and its implementation. Deloitte’s unique approach encompasses 2 dimensions:
Analyses a company and the role sustainable business practices play within that organisation. What’s more, it highlights the areas with a competitive edge, as well as the opportunities to improve business processes.
The Sustainability Value Map identifies optimization opportunities to create sustainable commercial value, providing a justification for investments in sustainability.
A game played online (bespoke) that visualises the financial and sustainable effects of decision-making within a company in the long run. Not a sustainability game, but a playful tool that teaches participants to recognise the value of thinking holistically. When playing the game, all layers of a company will gain more understanding and willingness vis-à-vis sustainability, ensuring a more rapid implementation and growth.
The above tools open up new vistas on where sustainability positively affects the financial performance in the business operations. Once the chances have been uncovered, Deloitte will assist the entrepreneur with implementing the most effective solution.
