profitable sustainable - sustainable profitable

We are fairly clever beings. We have developed incredible tools and technology that have made life easier and convenient. Yet, perceived financial barriers and particular interest back-up by large financial resources and lobbying power too often prevent reasonable solutions to a problem. In addition, the human nature tends to clinch to the known, and has suspicions towards the new, unknown. And we also tend to not like thinking too much about tomorrow.

"Sustainability" is not a new concept. Neither sustainable development (on the level of a nations) nor managing sustainability in the corporate context is a revolution. Sustainable thinking is the evolution of existing management and governance paradigms:  decision-making based on cost-benefits calculations that show the full composition of income and expenditure - the full extent of benefits, but also risks.

By applying a deeper and wider horizon (deeper in terms of looking ahead in time, and wider in terms issues taken into consideration), sustainable decision making is reasonable and allows least-cost future development.

Instead of choosing the path in the midst of the forest of quarterly numbers, managing and governing sustainable is looking over the forest from the elevated position of a hilltop to identify the best possible direction forward.

On the level of a nations, intelligent sustainable development equals lower total cost at higher living standards and a healthier environment. In the corporate world, being intelligently sustainable is equal to sustained competitiveness and business success.

SolaVis has developed and implemented sustainability management system that have helped three companies to become “world super-sector sustainability leaders” according to the Dow Jones World Sustainability Index.

It is SolaVis’ mission is to contribute to the realisation of reasonable least-cost solutions for the mutual benefit of society, nature, and the economy.
