Sustainability and profit are two sides of the same coin, which is why CEOs must build back greener from the global pandemic. But how can senior executives turn their decarbonisation ambitions into action to deliver on both their environmental and economic goals?
Long-term carbon reduction plans will quickly falter without the backing of senior leaders. These individuals are in a unique position to drive sustainability by setting a clear direction, nurturing team collaboration and managing cultural change.
There’s a groundswell of commitment to decarbonisation from businesses and investors alike, with many of the world’s best known brands setting net-zero targets. However, delivering on these long-term targets is complex and challenging.
Centrica Business Solutions is helping organisations to overcome these challenges. We have published a new guide to show business leaders ‘How to Turn Ambitious Sustainability Targets into Effective Action.’
To accelerate the delivery of ambitious sustainability goals, CEOs and their executive teams need a clear, dynamic action plan that de-risks commitments, shows tangible progress and reassures stakeholders.
The sustainability leaders’ guide explains how business leaders can create a carbon reduction plan that aligns fully with business strategy to deliver results, while demonstrating progress along the way.
This involves developing a sustainable energy pathway – broken down into manageable, incremental steps. Using this his methodology, organisations can translate both short and longer-term goals into feasible, detailed action plans that balance both economic and environmental priorities.
