Sustainability is becoming a hot topic in business for good reason: the realities of climate change are now undeniable, sustainable businesses are also often more cost-effective businesses, and the public is becoming more aware of our shared moral responsibilities.
Our powerful organisational software can help businesses reduce their carbon footprint by cutting out unnecessary travel, which also lets your staff members make the most of their time.
A recent survey by Concur demonstrates that small businesses spend 24% more than big businesses on expenses including travel. One way to cut this down is simply to achieve a better level of scheduling and organisation in your business, leading to less wastage of time, effort, and resources.
Becoming more sustainable will not only help you to conserve the things that really matter, it may also have a knock-on effect with your customers. As early as 2014, global information company Nielsen reported that 55% of consumers across 60 countries said they were willing to pay more for products and services that are offered by environmentally friendly Companies.
The most important reason to aim for more sustainability, though, goes beyond business. As the world becomes hotter every day, and our crops and water sources are imperiled, we all have a duty to the people that come after us to protect the planet in any way that we can.
