Sustainable value creation means to create economic, ecologic and societal value. It is the basis for profitable growths.
Sustainability needs to be embedded in the core business to enable sustainable value creation. We work with corporations and stakeholders to enable them to use CSR, Products and Value Chains in a way that creates value for all participants.
Products and Value Chains (the ‘Core Business’) are the basis of a company’s competitiveness.
Decades of linear operating practices combined with efficiency programs have led to significant economic improvements across many industries. But a linear way of operating and a narrow efficiency focus is no longer sufficient to maintain competitiveness.
An interdependent world, with limited resources and shrinking profits call for new paradigm: a circular economy, with sustainable products that provide value over the entire lifecycle, delivered by sustainable, resilient resp. flexible value chains.
Corporations face unprecedented levels of volatility and market pressures.
Constant change has become ‘the new normal’ and requires a continuous review of the core business, ie. in products and value chains, to stay competitive. A growing recognition amongst corporate leaders, that the current way of operating is not sustainable, enforces the need for change and calls for a new approach to close the gap between economic, ecologic and societal value creation.
