Sustainability is a strategic component of our approach and the reason why is quite simple. If our clients meet their goals and have a healthy, growing business we and our suppliers meet our goals. And, at a certain point in time, we will pass the torch to our children and we all want them to succeed.
According to the World Council for Economic Development (WCED), sustainable development is development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
But we believe there is more in “sustainability” than this, in line with the definition given by Financial Times:
“Business sustainability is often defined as managing the triple bottom line - a process by which companies manage their financial, social and environmental risks, obligations and opportunities. These three impacts are sometimes referred to as profits, people and planet.
However, this approach relies on an accounting based perspective and does not fully capture the time element that is inherent within business sustainability. A more robust definition is that business sustainability represents resiliency over time – businesses that can survive shocks because they are intimately connected to healthy economic, social and environmental systems. These businesses create economic value and contribute to healthy ecosystems and strong communities.
We work towards a sustainable environment, we are proud of our association with Herman Miller, one of the forefront sustainable companies in our sector, we always select our suppliers having in mind their relationship with the environment, but we also permanently strive to improve our own resilience over time while also helping our clients to create workspaces that will give them more business resilience and happier employees, because this is the only way we can create value that will help us all contribute to a better ecosystem and society.
