Companies can play an important role in promoting the uptake of sustainable lifestyles

By shaping the demand and supply of sustainable products and services, companies can do a lot to promote sustainable lifestyles more widely  – emphasized participants at the CEO round table discussions in June and in early September that focused on Sustainable Lifestyles through the Action 2020 Hungary program.

BCSDH’s CEO round-table discussions were held in June and continued in September. The purpose of the events was to define those focal areas in which BCSDH can define concrete recommendations and activities for the business sector. The hosts of the round-table discussions were BCSDH’s member companies Legrand Zrt., Daikin, Heineken, and ING.

Participants agreed that all companies, regardless of industry and size, have great potential in this area. The introduction of new business models, most of all the circular economy, can not only reduce ecological stress but also costs, thereby contributing to making sustainable lifestyles more affordable. Growing demand for sustainable products and services can be perceived in many sectors, but consumer education is still a big challenge for companies and brands.

The aim of BCSDH is to define recommendations and activities for the business sector regarding sustainable lifestyles with which companies can create real impact. Moreover, companies can introduce their business solutions on 18th October at  our business lunch and in related publications so that they can be adapted by other companies.

The main sponsors of the  Action2020 program in 2018 are Mastergood and Nestlé;  highlighted sponsors are Alteo, McDonald’s, MOL and Unilever; further sponsors include Allianz, E.On, Essity, Folprint, Hungarocontrol, HVG, KPMG and Rossmann.
