Any company operating in the 21st century is quickly realising that sustainability isn't a buzzword, nor is it a crusade for climate scientists and environmentalists alone. In the aftermath of the Paris Agreement, where each country committed to a set of measures to bring global warming to a halt, business savvy companies are also seeing sustainability as a great economic opportunity. Beyond contributing to the global goal to reduce emissions below the 2-degree threshold, sustainability actually enhances a business's success.
Every company is different, with their own history, culture and vision. The question of how a business becomes sustainable is less important than just starting somewhere and combining different measures. A long term plan and employee programs (such as the We Act Challenges) combine different aspects of the above described methods and help to accelerate the desired change in corporate culture. We Act Challenges are team competitions, designed to raise awareness for sustainability in a playful way. They are easy to implement and integrate into daily work, with the help of an interactive online platform and a range of proven impactful ecological and social actions. It doesn't matter where you begin, just start somewhere and shape a better future!
South Pole Group will support and join the Swiss We Act Challenge in September 2017. We invite our partners to sign up as well and register here until the 21st of August using the code "SPG17" for a 20% discount.
