How sustainability can support healthy business growth

Sustainability is becoming a competitive parameter. While few companies are still hesitant, the vast majority of executive managers have opened their eyes to the potential of working strategically with sustainability.

The numbers are pretty clear. 60% of Danish companies find that their customers are increasingly demanding sustainable behaviour. For larger companies, the figure is as much as 91%*. Correspondingly, expectations from employees, investors, and governments are steadily increasing.

At the same time, sustainability has moved from being about brand reputation and sustainable production to constituting a principle in the innovation of business models, where services, products, and partners can have sustainability as a focal point. For some, this means halving power consumption and doubling production capacity. For others recycling water. Solar power. Developing new materials. Reducing waste water. New conservation methods. Protecting endangered nature. Biodegradable packaging. New business partners in distant regions. The list goes on.

How sustainable values can create substantial profits

Regardless of whether you develop a product that improves the customer’s CO2 footprint, or work to make nutrition, food waste, and packaging consumption more sustainable in the food industry, the potential is enormous. Both when it comes to creating a better world and a sustainable bottom line.

But how exactly do you implement sustainability through, for example, the UN’s global goals and ESG targets (short for Environmental, Social, and Governance)? The challenge typically comes when the organisation moves from overall strategy to concrete execution.

We help our clients map the potential, prepare the strategy, and ensure the practical execution. For more than four decades, we have helped managers, specialists, and project managers in knowledge-intensive organisations transform visions and strategies into tangible results that build the bridge to the future.

Try our sustainability index and see how far you are

If you are motivated to put sustainability on your agenda, then Mannaz can help you get off to a good start. We facilitate dialogues about sustainability, where we have perspectives and ideas that inspire and challenge the dialogue in your organisation.

Mannaz can help you find opportunities, plan the execution, and create a roadmap to your level of ambition.

Start the conversation

  • Are there new products to develop and existing products to design more sustainably?

  • Is it a question of changing your business model?

  • Can you enter new partnerships across the value chain?

  • Can you design new products to last longer, to be repaired or reused for a second life?

  • Do you know how your organisation perceives your transformation towards greater sustainability?

See how far you are

  • With Mannaz Sustainability Transformation Index, you can see how far you or your organisation is within sustainability.

  • The questionnaire typically takes 5 minutes, and the result gives you an indication of where your organisation is from stages 1-5. You will also get recommendations and ideas for the next steps.
