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.
