Communicating the verified sustainability practices of a business to it’s customers, suppliers and funding bodies can provide a comparative advantage for the organisation.
The implementation of environmental and social practices within a business can also provide benefits for a business in terms of operational cost savings, comparative advantage, leverage marketing and to support corporate social responsibility obligations. While environmental sustainability has been the focus of much attention over the past decade there are still a number of barriers that need to be overcome for small businesses to successfully implement these practices. Research by the STCRC has shown that the main barriers are implementation costs, lack of customer demand, the labour-intensive nature of becoming certified, lack of government and industry support and the technicality of information forums.
For further information on corporate social responsibility, performance monitoring and environmental benchmarking please see the ‘Monitoring and Evaluation’ section.
