Sustainability in business

In the past business success has been measured by profitability and turnover ahead of most other factors.

As the drive for sustainability gathers momentum, new metrics will be added. What is a company’s environmental impact? Is their resource consumption increasing or decreasing? What societal benefit do they provide? Do they have an overarching purpose that will make the world a better and more resilient place?

Hilltop can help you think in systems to address all these areas together.

The growing importance of SDGs

You may not be that familiar with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, but there’s a good chance that your clients are, whether they are larger retailers or international brands. And the 17 goals highlight that sustainability is about a lot more than just climate change and the environment. But how to make them relevant to your business? We can help.
