Sustainability is not just a trend, but is becoming an indispensable core value for many lifestyle companies.
How do these companies develop innovative products and services and market them successfully while being environmentally, socially and economically sustainable?
A great opportunity:
Core value of lifestyle companies
The importance of sustainable product and service development
Environmentally friendly materials and processes
Lifestyle companies are increasingly turning to environmentally friendly materials and resource-saving production processes.
By choosing sustainable materials and using environmentally friendly technologies, they reduce their ecological footprint and promote a circular economy.
Ethical and social responsibility
Observing ethical standards and social responsibility is crucial throughout the supply chain.
Companies promote fair working conditions, support local communities and advocate for human rights.
Marketing and advertising with sustainability as the core message
Lifestyle companies use authentic communication to transparently present their sustainable values and efforts.
In this way, they create trust with their customers and promote long-term customer loyalty.
Sustainable packaging and presentation
The use of sustainable packaging and environmentally friendly presentation materials supports the environmental friendliness of the products and strengthens the brand image.
Opportunities and competitive advantages through the integration of the UN SDGs
The integration of the relevant SDGs of the UN Vision 2030 into the portfolio of offerings offers lifestyle companies significant opportunities and competitive advantages.
By adapting their business models to these global goals, they show their willingness to take responsibility for the environment and society and thus contribute to sustainable development.
Sectors and sustainability strategies for lifestyle companies
How can lifestyle brands integrate sustainability into their business model - a few (hopefully already implemented) suggestions:
