How Sustainability/ CSR/ ESG/ SDG reporting gives your company a competitive advantage

Besides proving that your company is socially and environmentally responsible, CSR/ESG/ Sustainability will also help you gain a competitive advantage, in more than one ways:

  • Reducing business costs: CSR saves money for your company. For example, GE’s Corporate Office achieved energy savings of over 57%, by replacing fluorescent bulbs with GE Lighting’s Lumination LED luminaire.
  • Distinguishing your business from the competition: For every pair of shoes a customer purchases, TOMS donates a pair to a child in need. Calling this initiative ‘One for One’, the footwear company is instantly setting itself apart from the competition.
