This transportation company realized that between pending sustainability regulations, external requests and changing consumer preferences around environmental initiatives it would need to initiate climate resiliency planning to stay ahead of potential business risks.
Sustainable Business Consulting worked with the transportation company to enhance its climate resiliency by:
- Uncovering physical, financial, brand, social and environmental risks to the business from extreme weather and climate change through a sustainability audit
- Identifying environmental partnerships around climate and potential opportunities for value creation that it could offer its customers
- Measuring, tracking and reporting its efforts to meet the needs of external 3rd parties and corporate responsibility reports
The company was able to identify its climate “hot spots” and develop a sustainability roadmap for mitigating risk. Moreover, a strong green business brand story was uncovered through the process which enabled the company to engage its partners on various opportunities that resulted in cost savings and reduced emissions.
