Redefining Products and Brands to Make a Sustainable Impact

Going beyond being “less bad” in an increasingly resource-constrained and socially challenged world, companies must focus on how to go beyond simply making their products less bad to becoming a force for social good. Successful companies do not view the sustainability forces which are affecting their business as threats. Instead, they see them as inspiring challenges that present opportunities to be more innovative with their products and services. These companies surpass delighting consumers and improving their competitive advantage; they contribute to a sustainable future. To be sure, the journey to a fully sustainable product portfolio is long and complex. Developing products with a demonstrably positive or significantly lower social or environmental impact during sourcing, production, supply, use and disposal can be difficult. Help is at hand. Join this webinar to gain insights on how to make your company’s products better and more sustainable.

How the Circular Economy Is Transforming Business

Natural resource constraints and global environmental risks are challenging the traditional linear economy—where companies "take, make, waste." Some companies are facing pressure from customers and suppliers to adjust their business models based on circular economy concepts: a way of doing business that aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, and in which products and materials are recovered and regenerated at the end of their service life. For many companies, this adjustment signifies a daunting business model transformation.

The Social Purpose of Business

After investing in and measuring CSR strategies for a decade or more, many leading companies find that their impacts are only modest and they need an accelerated model to achieve social impact at a greater scale.

They rewire their business so that their growth is a positive force in society and realize a competitive advantage in doing so. Further, they adopt a compelling and aspirational core purpose or mission that goes beyond making money to create value for both business and society. This core purpose – their contribution to society and the greater good – shapes and informs the company’s essential reason for being. For some it transcends maximizing profits and shareholder value, and for others it is the means by which they create value and grow. Either way, it becomes a shared intent by everyone in the business, guiding the decisions of leaders and employees across the company.

Your sustainability strategy and policy direction have been set. Now what?

Sustainable Extraction: Environmental Initiatives for Canada’s Resource Industries

Canada's natural resources are in demand all over the world, but are our extraction industries working as efficiently as they could be? Evidence is showing high rates of failure for extraction projects, often stemming from environmental performance concerns and legacy issues of past practices. Failing to address this issues has led to stakeholder conflicts, regulatory and policy-related challenges, and unfavourable external environments. Industry has been working hard to change its historic reputation and improve environmental practices, but many companies are finding it difficult to engage and sustain momentum when the sector continues to experience extended market fluctuations and economic impacts. So what can companies do now to help alleviate these issues and start working in a more efficient, environmentally-conscious capacity?

Join us for this 60 minute session where mining and environmental expert Karen Chovan will present key strategies to facilitate engagement and empowerment of personnel to participate in and sustain positive change within our resource industries. Every person, team and discipline in an organization plays a significant role in the facilitation of initiatives aimed at improving stakeholder support and improvements in environmental performance. These personnel need only the connection and alignment of their own roles to the proposed targets, and the opportunities to present and implement solutions and strategies within their scope. With small contributions from all team players, success can be had through alignment.
