WEBINAR: Making the Sustainability Business Case: A Step-by-Step Framework for Articulating the ROI of your Sustainability Initiatives
By Chloe Pott on April 11, 2013
In a challenging economic environment, sustainability projects require more than reducing carbon footprint and environmental impact; contributing to your organization’s bottom line is a key requirement. Demonstrating the link between sustainability performance and financial performance is crucial to securing investment in sustainability programs.
Companies are starting to make this link by using potential cost savings to justify investments in sustainability programs. However, there are many other ways to demonstrate the business value of sustainability programs and strengthen the business case. For example, using fewer raw materials reduces dependence on unreliable supply chains and volatile commodity markets. Investing in climate change mitigation reduces the risk of extreme weather events disrupting the services or goods that companies provide. And modern plant and machinery is not only energy-efficient but also more reliable, ensuring more orders are fulfilled on time and improving customer satisfaction.
Join us for this one-hour webcast where experts will outline a step-by-step approach for making the link between sustainability and financial performance, showing how to strengthen your sustainability business case. They will describe the tools and technologies available and provide case studies that highlight best practices.
