Benefits Of Being Sustainable

By making sustainability a focus, businesses can:

  • Increase tourists by promoting your sustainability credentials to ‘green-savvy’ consumers who make purchase decisions based on minimising their own footprint
  • Reduce operating costs by undertaking initiatives that reduce waste, water and energy consumption
  • Develop a competitive advantage by establishing and promoting sustainable business practices as a point of difference
  • Attract and retain valuable staff by adopting policies that meet with employee values and concerns
  • Encourage investors interested in companies with long-term sustainability plans that minimise operating risks in the future
  • Increase long-term profitability by putting plans in place now that will create savings in the future such as minimising transport costs that will continue to rise as fuel becomes more expensive
