The green transition is the most significant systemic change of our time. To speed up the green transition, every organisation must go through a sustainable transformation — we call it susformation.
Susformation is a change in which we move to thinking about sustainability as a key part of the organisation’s strategy and the operation of the entire value chain. In susformation, strategic sustainability replaces one-off sustainability actions. It creates added value for the organisation’s operations, stakeholders, and the surrounding society.
Susformation is actively working to transform the core of your business to solve challenges our society faces today and tomorrow. With susformation, our customers make the green transition a reality by creating structures, services and products that enable the conditions for sustainable growth.
The forces of nature are our greatest disruptor. The effects of climate change, biodiversity loss and resource scarcity to our business environment are complex and interlinked.
All organisations need to decide their tactics. Should time and effort be placed mainly on ensuring that your business meets minimum requirements, or should you aim to leverage the possibilities offered by the green transition to build better business?
Susformation is a journey, where the biggest step is the decision to start. For some, it means survival. For most susformation means new opportunities and growth.
The change drivers, such as the energy crisis and circular economy, create opportunities for growth for organisations that, in turn, shape the markets. Sustainable financing, changes in consumer behavior and legislation will support sustainable companies even more strongly in the future.
Combating climate change and limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius requires effective emission reductions in all sectors. The climate crisis threatens business, but the green transition is also an opportunity to create a competitive advantage by offering carbon-neutral solutions.
Biodiversity is the richness of both species and habitats living on Earth and is a prerequisite for human existence. All businesses and societies depend on the biological regulatory and productive services provided by nature’s diversity.
We are currently consuming natural resources beyond the earth’s carrying capacity. Resource scarcity is already visible in higher business costs and threatens the availability of raw materials in the future. A circular economy, where raw materials and resources stay in value chains for as long as possible, is a central key to the green transition and the climate and biodiversity crisis.
Abandoning fossil fuels and moving towards renewable and emission-free forms of energy is central to the green transition. Climate goals require even more sustainable energy systems. New, strong and flexible energy networks enable sector coupling, i.e. connecting different forms of energy to each other and to the structures of society.
