Top Sustainability Measures Companies Are Taking in 2021
As the expectations on corporate responsibility increase and transparency becomes more prevalent, companies are recognizing the need to implement solid sustainability measures. This year, many organizations will forge ahead with plans to maximize energy efficiency, manage waste, reorganize production, and more.
Here are a few of the biggest corporate sustainability trends we’ll see in 2021 and beyond.
Energy Efficiency Plans
First and foremost, businesses will begin to make meaningful progress with regard to energy efficiency. Some may even bring on experts to help assess and rework old processes. These plans include steps like installing LED lights, optimizing heating and cooling units and switching from desktop computers to laptops.
Waste Management Programs
Waste management will also be a big consideration for businesses this year, as they look for ways to dispose of waste without polluting the planet. Businesses can become more sustainable and environmentally friendly through a combination of composting, recycling, low-packaging alternatives, and going paperless.
Supply Chain & Production Reorganization
Implementing a sustainable supply chain has become a vital element of social corporate responsibility and will continue to be a topic of conversation for the foreseeable future. Environmental impacts from supply chains are often severe, and can include toxic waste, water pollution, loss of biodiversity and many others. We will start to see businesses engage with suppliers to improve these impacts by promoting environmental responsibility and the usage of clean technologies.
Remote Work Culture
A by-product of the COVID-19 pandemic, working from home has become the norm for businesses everywhere. This trend will continue in the coming years, as it reduces costs and helps contribute to long term sustainability. Allowing employees to work from home helps to reduce the number of cars on the road, which curbs gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption.
The sustainability measures we have highlighted will help businesses find new paths forward in 2021 and for years to come.
