The word innovation gets thrown around a lot these days, particularly among those close to technology.
From 2022 and beyond though, we believe that businesses need to shift their focus from innovating with technology, to innovating with sustainability.
While this shift may seem insignificant at first, it has the potential to redefine businesses for good.
When you innovate with technology alone, you can easily disregard sustainability. In fact this is commonplace for most businesses.
Innovating within sustainability however can lead you towards more significant breakthroughs than innovating on technology alone. Breakthroughs in efficiency, developing new products, using new materials and developing new partnerships. All of which have more potential upside over the long-term, especially as our global environmental impacts worsen.
The best part is, shifting your focus to innovating with sustainability doesn’t exclude you from innovating with technology.
You can do both.
This shift in mindset is important for business leaders now more than ever. It’s likely that your customers already want a more sustainable version of you. The question is, will you be the one that moves first?
