Return on Sustainable Investment
1

RETURN ON RELIABILITY

Increase trust in your brand & company

Sustainable business is not about perfection, but about reliability. Research shows that 69% of consumers have little faith in what companies say about sustainability. According to the Edelman Trust Barometer report, consumers trust companies more that are transparent about their sustainability efforts. The Nielsen Global Corporate Sustainability Report indicates that transparency results in stronger brand loyalty and customer retention, with 66% of consumers reportedly willing to pay more for sustainable brands. Sustainability Partner’s ACT SHOW PROVE app helps you transparently communicate your achievements and KPIs with timestamps in the Ethereum Blockchain. This allows all your internal and external stakeholders to watch live as your company makes sustainable progress step by step.

RETURN ON TALENT

Attract and retain the right people

Sustainable business practices are a powerful way to attract and retain talent. A study by Cone Communications found that 64% of millennials don’t want to work for a company that lacks solid Corporate Social Responsibility practices. By integrating sustainability into your company culture, you position your company as an attractive employer for both current and potential employees.

RETURN ON COMPETITIVITY

Create added value and win more business

In B2B, pursuing sustainability goals is a differentiator. Yet, many salespeople prefer to avoid discussions about sustainability (due to a lack of knowledge or supporting resources), which is a missed opportunity. In B2C, improving competitiveness through sustainability is also an effective strategy. The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan clearly shows that their most sustainable brands grow 50% faster than the rest of the company. This illustrates that sustainability can be a powerful differentiator that also leads to increased sales and market share.

RETURN ON CONTINUITY

Make sure your growth isn't held back

The requirements for sustainability reporting will increase over the coming years, especially under the influence of European regulations such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive. This directive requires companies with more than 250 employees to provide detailed reports on their impact on people, the environment, and society (IMD Business School). This establishes a basis for transparency and trust, which are essential for forming sustainable partnerships and obtaining financing. Major banks and other financial institutions are increasingly critical of companies' sustainability, where a clear and effective sustainability plan becomes a prerequisite for financing.

RETURN ON FUTURE

Use the power of business as a force for good

In a future not far from today, sustainability isn't just an option—it's a prerequisite for business. In this context, sustainability is the business. To find purpose and relevance moving forward, every business must answer one simple question: "Is the world better with my company in it?" The inevitable follow-up question is: How can we make this measurable? This is where Sustainability Partner comes in with The Way to B™. Thanks to our innovative approach, you can seamlessly integrate B Corp Certification into your CSRD reporting trajectory, resulting in significant time savings. Consequently, you'll not only meet reporting standards but also gain recognition for your commitment to transparency and continuous improvement!"
