Green transition

There is money in thinking about green and sustainable business development

A sustainable mission is beneficial for the business, which is why it is a high priority for many companies. 

By working with sustainability in your business strategy, there are specifically 5 impact points that create an effect: 

  • Reduce costs 
  • Increase sales and create long-term customer relationships 
  • Create innovation in operation and development 
  • Attract the best skills/employees 
  • Create a better version of your business 

There is money in thinking green and sustainable and it is an absolutely decisive competitive parameter. More and more companies, within all industries, are feeling the increasing demands from customers, authorities and the outside world. 

The basic point is that green transition and competitiveness are two sides of the same coin. You must put the green and sustainable on the agenda in the company, because it can be good business and a decisive competitive parameter. 

To support your business, we at Billund Erhverv have various initiatives that focus on green growth and sustainable business development.

Sustainability permeates all areas of the company, but it starts in management.

Sustainability can be important for the company's purpose or 'purpose', strategy, risk management and for how to attract and retain labour. Green conversion is not an independent project for the specialists, but something that will affect all parts of a company's activities.

Therefore, it is important that the company's management and possibly The board takes part in the green agenda.

Today, it is not enough to be the best at developing and producing good products.

There is increasing pressure on the company from customers to initiate green initiatives to reduce the CO2 footprint. Or perhaps you yourself have been pulled into the green leader's jersey and are trying to pull the rest of the value chain along with you.

The potential is great:
  • Savings, by reducing e.g. material, energy or water consumption.
  • Circular economy as part of the business model, where materials and products maintain the highest possible value in the economic cycle over time through recycling or waste prevention when repairing or upgrading.
  • Opportunity to enter new markets or launch new services because you produce green services that appeal to new segments or existing customers.
  • More motivated employees, because they experience a stronger meaning with a working life where they not only deliver financial results, but also results that contribute to maintaining the social and environmental balance on the globe.

Network – Green Competitiveness

Business sparring

We put sustainability on the agenda in your business strategy. Sustainability permeates all areas of the company, but it starts with the company's management accepting that sustainability is important to the company's purpose and future. 

Sustainability must be part of the company's mission. Green conversion is not an independent project for the specialists, but something that will affect all parts of a company's activities. 

Therefore, it is important that the company's management and possibly The board takes part in the green agenda. 

We offer you impartial sparring on the possibilities and possibly help to get started, you just need to contact us.
