One of our most important targets is to develop an eco-friendly business model and reputation.
While the process itself can appear to be difficult, developing an eco-friendly business model and reputation pays off in the short run; we are interested in helping the Earth, but we can still make a profit developing an eco-friendly business model because environmentally-friendly business is a profitable business.
Note: International governments’ inaction and lack of leadership are clearly worrying but, at the same time, the proactive approaches of a few leading-edge companies are encouraging. Toyota, Sainsbury’s, WalMart, DuPont, Tesco, Unilever, Marks & Spencer and General Electric have made tackling environmental wastes a key economic driver. As Jonathon Porritt, director of Forum for the Future, observed, a “governance shift” is occurring in the field of sustainability, with governments stepping back and businesses stepping forward to lead the change. An example: DuPont, one of the early adopters, committed itself to a 65% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the 10 years prior to 2010. By 2007, DuPont was saving $2.2bn a year through energy efficiency, the same as its total declared profits that year.
A few generations ago it seemed like the world’s resources were infinite, and people needed only to access them to create businesses and grow humanity. Today, we know how false that is. We now know that rather than finding ways to exploit new resources, people and companies need to focus on finding sustainable ways to grow, while protecting the planet and the resources we have left. For every company that spills millions of gallons of oil into the oceans, there are plenty more companies operating under this new ethos. We are one of them.
