Are your competitors better prepared?

Opinion – if you agree please share


Two important questions

1) How will your company or organisation benefit from the transition to the green economy?

2) Are your competitors better prepared, gaining a competitive advantage?

Your competitors will gain a competitive advantage if they are better prepared/preparing for:

  • Changes and stricter regulations regarding emissions, adjusting their products and services accordingly.
  • Changes in buying patterns and investment decisions taken by newer generations which are overwhelmingly pro-sustainability.
  • Stricter stock exchange rules (World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) fully aligned with GRI Standards)
  • The EU Directive: Large Companies must report non-financial information
  • Investors who want to see that a company is well-prepared for the foreseeable future.
  • Ever growing supply chain pressure. Companies are choosing to do business with corporations that can provide sustainability-related information and data and can demonstrate that they are aware of environmental, economic and societal risks, taking continuous action. These companies are looking for long-term, sustainable relationships.

A good GRI Standards CSR/ ESG/ SDG/ Sustainability Report will help you make sound sustainable development decisions and help you gain competitive advantage.
