Keynote: "Key Trends in the Field of Sustainability and the Road Ahead"
by Toby Crewe, International Solutions Director, Schneider Electric
During the past 200 years the field of sustainability has evolved from philanthropic initiatives by the wealthy to a risk management approach in the mid-1900 fuelled by global environmental scandals to the multi stakeholder approach we experience in today’s world of social medias, changing political environments and climate changes.
From the blue collar worker on the shop floor to the CEO at the top floor, sustainability has become a part of life for many companies. For some, it’s a matter of meeting demands from customers seeking socially responsible goods and services. For others, it’s about addressing pressure from stakeholders including investors—or pursuing their own corporate values. For still others, especially those in a resource constrained environment, it’s a strategic necessity.
Whatever the key driver is, sustainability has become a sufficiently universal topic, that defining it and executing business programs, products, and practices with an eye to their environmental and social implications has become a demanding managerial exercise. For some, sustainability has proved to be a valuable lens through which they have identified opportunities that they might have otherwise missed; to cut costs, reduce risk, and generate revenues.
Consider the multinational consumer-goods company Unilever, which changed the shape of a deodorant to use less plastic in packaging and created a concentrated laundry product that sharply reduces its use of water. German pharmaceutical company Bayer expects to save more than $10 million a year with a resource efficiency check it developed to improve operations by using by-products and reducing wastewater and global chemical company DuPont has recorded $2 billion in annual revenue from products that reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.
Based on more 20 year of experience from, International Solutions Director & sustainability strategist Toby Crewe shares his key insights from leading global companies on key trends and tendencies within the field of sustainability and how sustainability achievements can create current & future business value.
