WHY DEPLOY A SUSTAINABILITY MANAGEMENT SOLUTION?
Sustainable development in society and industry has been central to policy making and business strategies for a long time – and not just since the Fridays For Future movement took off. Major international milestones like the Paris Climate Agreement and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have underscored the urgent need for change. Since 2017, CSR reporting has become mandatory, with organisations now required to publish non-financial as well as financial information. Although a large number of organisations were already issuing reports on their environmental performance before it became mandatory, many are now legally required to do so.
Regulatory requirements aside, organisations are becoming increasingly aware that managing their business responsibly is more than just an end in itself. It can, in fact, add quantifiable value, ranging from efficiency gains and cost savings to stronger employer branding and greater employee loyalty, to forward-looking business strategies that help safeguard their license to operate.
As a result, business sustainability is becoming a key task for organisations – one that calls for professional planning, management and communications. Many businesses, though, still lack the guidance they need on how to integrate sustainability management efficiently and professionally and to transition successfully from Excel sheets to smart, collaborative, process-driven solutions.
This is where WeSustain’s Enterprise Sustainability Management solution comes in: It puts in your hands the technical resources you need to manage your sustainability data efficiently and take a fact-driven approach to corporate sustainability.
