In the wake of last week’s failure to pass legislation in the US Senate, the latest climate bill’s struggles may seem like a major set-back to sustainability. However, climate change only represents one small slice of an enormous pie of sustainability opportunity available.

Described in a recent article, The Climate Bill Is Dead, But Large Businesses Will Pursue Sustainability Anyway, the future of business sustainability remains largely unaffected. The reality is that major companies, like Wal-Mart, are not heavily motivated by legislation. Business sustainability leaders will continue to pursue the value of sustainability.

• Decrease internal operating expense through process efficiencies.
• Decrease supply chain costs through aligned incentives.
• Improved business reputation, driving up base sales.
• Expansion into new markets in response to consumer expectations.
• Improved stock performance.
• Attraction of financial investment.

While this recent climate bill’s failure to pass may result in a decrease in risk mitigation incentives, a larger portion of business sustainability drivers derive from a positive business value perspective. Our sustainability consulting interfaces with businesses taking proactive sustainable action to capture the economic benefits of business sustainability and drive bottom line improvements.
