Most entrepreneurs in emerging markets view sustainability as being mutually exclusive with their economic interests. They perceive it to be too difficult or cost prohibitive to implement. However, research and experience have now established that sustainability is a key driver for innovation, which can assure productivity and efficiency gains. As such there is the need for entrepreneurs to embed sustainability in their business practices in order to ensure the survival and success of their enterprises. In this workshop, we show that sustainability is not just about the environment, but an important step towards an efficient business model that reduces waste, cuts costs and increases profit.
This workshop will:
- Discuss how sustainable practices can improve your bottom line.
- Elaborate on ways to assess and implement more sustainable business methods.
- Survey the funding options that support sustainability & innovation in small businesses.
- Look at successful sustainable small and medium scale enterprises.
