INCREASE BUSINESS EFFICIENCY
The conceptual spark of sustainable production lies in valuing longer-term consequences and benefits over short-term profits.
Organisations can thrive by investing in well-designed safer products, resource-efficient technologies and processes, and trained and empowered employees.
Manufacturing more efficiently can help cut costs, improve throughput and reduce environmental impact.
Waste provides no value to the customer, contributes nothing to your bottom line, but does have a cost.
An automated standard design template that can be customised for each client wastes less time going back and forth, results in fewer mistakes, and can increase productivity by 40% and revenues by 150% without increasing headcount.
Employee engagement can be a powerful factor in your business success. Engaged employees are more productive, customer-focused, profit-generating and are more likely to be retained.
Employee engagement is a key strategic initiative that drives employee performance, accomplishment and continuous improvement all year long. Engaged employees operate far more efficiently and positively impact your bottom line.
Employees want to work with companies who are being proactive with corporate environmental and social programmes.
Companies with sustainability programs report:
55% better employee morale
43% more efficient business processes
38% improved employee loyalty.
Green commuting increases staff wellbeing, makes them more productive in the morning and reduces sick days.
Cycling makes you mentally sharper and happier. It makes our bodies release feel-good hormones, like serotonin, dopamine and endorphins. This results in happier employees which boosts productivity, increases employee resilience and reduces staff turnover.
Supply Chain Efficiency
Raw materials are becoming scarcer, energy more expensive and at the same time, the amount of waste is rising. In addition to this, soil, air and water pollution pose a risk to sustainable development all around the world.
By working closely with their suppliers, companies can lessen their environmental and social impact and position themselves for strong growth. Working to make your supply chain more sustainable can improve your business relationships which can lead to increased business efficiency.
Give more business to better and more efficient suppliers. Find the true cost of supplies (that includes returns and mistakes!) Suppliers with customer-friendly attitudes are also easier to deal with if something goes wrong.
