McKinsey & Company
For business leaders already facing a difficult journey into the post-COVID next normal, sustainability and profitability can look like conflicting goals. Large-scale investments in renewable energy, advanced manufacturing technologies, or alternative materials may appear harder to justify in an environment when many organisations are re-examining their costs, product portfolios, and capital plans.
Sustainability doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. When companies optimise their operations - whether to increase productivity, improve quality, or reduce cost - better environmental performance can be a by-product. Efficient manufacturing processes and supply chains don’t just cost less to run, they also consume less energy, use fewer resources, and produce less waste.
