Webinar: How to Build a Sustainable, Environmentally-Friendly Business
February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
An increasing number of businesses are utilising claims of sustainability such as “all natural”,” “fair trade,” and “organic” within their marketing and packaging to differentiate from their competitors with proven results in improving their bottom line and reputation.
Yet, developing environmentally-friendly practices to implement within your business isn’t as straightforward as altering your logo to make it green or making vague promises about cutting energy use and recycling more. Sustainable businesses benefit from reductions in waste, consumption of resources and operating costs. They enjoy improved public perception and engagement, increased compliance with regulation and legislation and see increased market share and revenues. They also have highly engaged workforces with good rates of retention and employee satisfaction and are more innovative with highly efficient operating processes and practices.
So how can businesses embrace new, eco-friendly innovative technologies, source sustainable resources and adopt environmentally-friendly practices to enjoy a triple-bottom-line win in productivity, profits, and the planet? During this webinar, we’ll discuss cost-effective, sustainable solutions that won’t be impossible to budget for or achieve. Join us to learn how to you can “green” your business, improve your bottom line and gain valuable support from your community and customers.
