Sustainable companies are currently in the spotlight. In fact, there seems to be a model shift in the business sector, prioritizing much more eco-friendly attitudes that respect the environment. Let’s take a look at what this mentality entails, as well as what brands have started to successfully implement this model.

Sustainable business practices

What defines companies that adopt this model?

  • Use of local resources. Any company, even those in the technology industry, can modify their consumption model. Even the smallest details count. For example, if your company offers fruit or snacks for guests and meetings, try to opt for local products.
  • Implementing the three Rs. Reduce, reuse, recycle. From paper up to the use of technology, there are plenty of ways to apply these principles.
  • Prioritize digitalization. In particular, we mean reducing paper use as much as possible. And, if you do need to use it, make sure it’s recycled. Other than that, tablets or laptops are a practical and more ecofriendly option.
  • Changing people’s mentalities. It could be really useful to host a talk once in a while. Otherwise, you could also promote recycling both in the office and at home, offer short courses to your employees, etc.
  • Try to achieve maximum energy efficiency within the company. Hiring a consultancy firm or implementing changes in the business’ structure can save lots of energy and, consequently, lots of money at the end of the year. This is also an example of good practice that can help to change both company and employee mentalities.
  • Pursue sustainability certifications. Many companies may be eligible to receive certifications that justify the sustainability of their actions and work culture. If such awards exist within your sector, go ahead and pursue them. They’ll help you see what specific criteria you need to satisfy and, if you do become certified, you’ll be motivated to set the goal of maintaining the certification for as long as possible.

Some examples of sustainable businesses

Let’s take a look at some of the leading companies that have started to adopt this model.

  • Inditex. This textile industry leader has achieved their net zero goal at their Arteixo offices, thanks to solar panels. What’s more, the food served in their cafeteria incorporates local, seasonal products.
  • Disney. This company has also tried to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible throughout their entire production chain.
  • Nike. With their line of sustainable products, as well as a series of marketing initiatives that aim to positively impact the environment, this is another brand that has embraced a new mentality.

Ultimately, sustainable companies have become the new model of success in the business world. If you’re looking to work with a translation agency that can help you communicate your sustainability journey in other languages, look no further. At blarlo, we’re here for whatever you need!
