Profit, Planet, People!
The Small Business Development Center for Enterprise Excellence (SBDCEE) uses the principles of Sustainability to help North Texas Small Businesses grow profitably.
Sustainability is defined as “Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
We believe that Sustainability can only be achieved with a balanced approach to the Triple Bottom Line of Profit, Planet & People.
• Our Profit programs focus on not only reducing energy costs and waste, but also increasing profitable sales of green products and services.
• Our Planet programs focus on performing onsite assessments to create company-specific and prioritized recommendations to favorably impact the planet and your business.
• Our People programs focus on creating a safe, successful, servant leadership work environment that improves employee and customer attitudes.
Does SUSTAINABILITY mean “GREEN”?
Our culture often uses the word “Sustainability” interchangeably with “Green”. We consider “Green” to be “practices, processes, and products that have a minimal impact on the health of the ecosystem. The emphasis is on non-hazardous, recyclable, reusable, and energy efficient products, services, and processes.” So Sustainability includes Green concepts, but they are not interchangeable.
What does this mean to you, the entrepreneur or business owner?
Consider creating a Sustainable Business Strategy (SBS). This is the best way your organization can cohesively plan, act and manage your financial, social and environmental performance that will create value for you, your stakeholders and meet present needs without compromising the ability to meet future needs.
Because our services are already paid for by your tax dollars, give us a call to schedule a free counseling session. We can help you create a strategy, prepare a business plan or solve business issues that impact PROFIT, PLANET & PEOPLE.
