Ensemble 10: Sustainable Businesses
Examples of Sustainable Business in Action
A sustainable business must challenge the status quo of what the expectations of businesses should be in the first place. See what that looks like in action.
♻️ A Sustainable Business Today Must be Much More than “Sustainable.” 🌎
We can’t sustain what we’ve always done, because the practice of business and the economy have been monumentally out of balance with what the world can reasonably endure. This isn’t just from an environmental perspective, this concept of sustainability spreads from considering the planet to considering the people affected, too.
A sustainable business must be much more than “green.” Business leaders need to aspire to a higher standard, and consumers need to be able to tell the difference.
📚 In this Collection, You’ll Learn:
- What is a “sustainable business” anyways?
- Why does sustainability in business matter, why is it important to consumers?
- What are the examples of “sustainable businesses” in the world who are making profits but first taking care with people and the planet?
- What are sustainable practices in business? What do these look like, and how do we measure their “success?”
- How a “sustainable business” looks different industry to industry.
- How can businesses become more sustainable—and how can consumers push them to be.
- What’s the future for sustainable business?
Businesses and businesses leaders can discover a new level of “doing business” to aspire to and consumers can determine the companies and entrepreneurs they should support.
