Sustainability Strategy

An effective CSR and sustainability strategy is becoming a necessity for most companies. It is also a key competitive advantage and provides enhanced brand value, increased customer loyalty and satisfaction, improved staff retention as well as higher performance and service quality.

s-strategyAn alignment with principles of sustainable development requires the integration of new management processes, policies and key performance indicators. It may also encompass aspects that were not previously within the scope of a company’s strategy, such as climate change and human rights. These new business priorities can extend beyond the company’s usual boundaries to include external stakeholders in the supply chain and communities.
