Are your competitors better prepared?

Two important questions

1) How will your company or organisation benefit from the transition to the Sustainable, Circular 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.
