Business Strategies You Need To Know.  

Recently, many businesses are developing around environmental protection. Thus, more competition in the market. In order to grow, it is essential to implement sustainable business goals. 

Soar360 encourages businesses to practice sustainability in all aspects of the business. Therefore, we would like to recommend 4 essential goals. 

1. Sustainably sourced

Businesses should start with responsible production. The products needs to be ethically supplied, fair traded, recyclable, renewable, and be made of biodegradable materials. 

This will be rewarded as consumers are willing to invest in sustainable products and services. This is especially true in the recent environment. 

Besides that, businesses should practice green procurement and support the local businesses and economy. Brands should build around this idea to be more grounded. 

2. Eco-friendly packaging 

Packaging contributes to about 23% of landfill. By reducing brand pollution and changing packaging practices, businesses can thrive. 

There are many biodegradable materials that can be used for packaging. That includes corn starch, mycelium, wood pulp, and seaweed. 

Consumers are always interested in fun functional packages. It should be part of your brand experience. Learning about recycling and reusing of the packaging would also educate your consumers and the society about sustainability

3. Sustainable storage

In addition, choose eco-friendly facilities that use renewable energy for your businesses. You will require a warehouse for inventories or an office where you can manage your business. It is important to make sure these locations follow sustainable business goals. 

Therefore, ensure that the products are packed and stored in biodegradable containers, avoiding toxic plastics. Besides that, businesses might want to consider donating unused products instead of throwing them away. 

4. Green shipping and delivery 

Finally, once the products are purchased online, reducing paperworks, it’s time to deliver them. To be sustainable, the packaging needs to be compact. 

Shipping and delivery is as important as the products. Businesses need to reduce carbon footprint by minimising the cost and space of packaging boxes. 

Thus, businesses should be familiar with eco-friendly shipping materials that include biodegradable pouches and filler, recyclable cardboards, and compostable bags. In fact, many businesses also recommend consolidating orders for bulk purchases
