Developing your business sustainablyThe page was last modified:
Are you curious about how you can develop your business or your activities in a more sustainable direction? There are many ways that you can benefit from the transition to a more sustainable society and increase the profitability of your business, while helping to create a sustainable future.
When developing your business, it is essential to think about both what develops your business internally and what develops your offering to your customers. Both these elements are important for the sustainability impact of your business and for remaining relevant as a business amidst the ongoing sustainable transition. If you are in a development phase and want to further incorporate sustainability, focus on integrating sustainability into your business strategy and pushing it in a sustainable direction.
The information on sustainable entrepreneurship is divided into four sections in our sustainability guide. Which sections that are relevant to you and your business will depend on whether you are selling goods or services, what industry you are operating in, and how far you have come in the work of integrating sustainability into your business. Each section also includes questions to consider for developing your sustainability work.
All the questions from all four sections are collected here.
You can start with any of the areas, but the important thing is to make a start!
