Sustainability has become one of the “must-haves” in today’s business context. Customers and investors are increasingly looking at a company’s environmental and social impacts when evaluating a product or service, and governments are setting ambitious carbon-reduction targets for as soon as 2030. But that doesn’t mean sustainability must be a cost center. Sustainability is often seen as creating an extra layer of costs and investment in equipment or raw materials. In reality, it’s possible to reduce business costs with sustainability after an initial investment that will pay for itself in the long run.
