Achieving the Sustainability Edge

The key value we bring to building your sustainability edge is our knowledge and expertise to evaluate a comprehensive set of sustainability avenues covering the core and extended ecosystems of your business.

The other value we add is in helping your company translate your sustainability efforts and results into meaningful and powerful metrics that significantly enhance your company’s branding and positioning.

The most effective ways to attain the sustainability edge will be different for different companies, even if they are in the same business category. This is because the sustainability edge is achieved not only by leveraging the tangible assets and business characteristics, but also by building upon the company culture and value systems. A company that had long had a culture of involving the society around its manufacturing facilities in its activities could develop sustainable strategies that build upon this aspect – this company could emphasise on procuring a lot more components or raw materials from local vendors, for instance.

Adding elements of sustainability to your business is no longer just good ethics, it is good business too, because in India, as well as in many other parts of the world, we are today having more aware and more active consumers. Such consumers are increasingly demanding that the brands they purchase or consume should care about the people and the planet as much as they care about profits.

Examples of consumer sustainability aspirations abound across diverse end use sectors and products – be they in the form of organically produced food, in the movement away from leather & fur, or in the form of energy and resource saving features of the product.

In addition, evolving government mandates and regulations add another set of imperatives for your company’s value chain to embrace sustainability. Such external drivers essentially imply that being a more sustainable enterprise could not just get more business, it also could mean less penalties!

Finally, the best of breed companies worldwide, and in India, are reviewing their entire value chains to explore how best to embed sustainability in as many of the value chain components as possible – starting all the way from raw material production (by their suppliers!) to in-bound and out-bound logistics, to how packaging of their products for their end users could be more sustainable and environment friendly.

The top management of companies need to consider all the above aspects while they try to design their companies to attain the sustainability edge.
