There are many ways your business performance can be improved, and it’s important to never overlook the role environmental sustainability plays, especially given the major sustainability risks your company faces.
Increasing energy costs and worries over resource availability can have a big impact on the economic performance of a business, while potential incidents in the supply chain (like on site accidents) can lead to large direct costs e.g. compensation claims and the wider impacts related to bad publicity and potential brand boycotts. Sustainability means the long term profitability and survival of businesses and in order for them to prosper they need to understand and manage the risks at a strategic and operational level.
