Upping Your Green Game

An Increasing Number of Growing Businesses are Upping their Green Game – Are You?

It’s just good business sense.

Look around, lots of big name companies like Diageo, Dairygold, Apple and Ikea are publicising their environmental progress. Why do you think this could be? The simple answer is that sustainability helps companies bottom line. So we will undoubtedly see a growing number of businesses upping their green game because company’s efforts are beginning to reap some serious benefits.

And the leader of the pack? Well while more and more companies are leading the charge, one so often stands out….Unilever. Yes, the company with all those brands we love like Dove, Knorr, Lynx, Surf and Hellmans. But most importantly the largest ice-cream manufacturer in the world!

How pray tell have they achieved such glory? In 2010 they launched the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, which is their blueprint for sustainable business. Their strategic vision is to double the size of their business while reducing their environmental footprint, and increasing their positive social impact. And is it working…well quite simply, YES. Unilever experienced 2015 sales growth of 4.1% and were awarded the top ranking in the 2015 Sustainability Leaders survey from GlobeScan/SustainAbility for the fifth consecutive year.

A shining example of a company with a vision to reduce their environmental impact while increasing their positive social impact, driving profitable growth for their brands and ultimately saving costs. Check out how they do it here.
