„We cannot choose between economic growth and sustainability – we must have both.”
Paul Polman, CEO Unilever
Student Impact’s mission is to advise sustainable start-ups and SMEs across industries with the goal of making a social and ecological impact within society. But what exactly is Student Impact’s understanding of the term sustainability? And how are we trying to make a socio-environmental contribution using consulting services as a means to this end?
The term “sustainability” encompasses three dimensions, namely business, society and environment. According to the Brundtland Commission, sustainability can be defined as follows: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Consequently, our service is limited to projects that meet the requirements of the two following levels of sustainability.
Attitude towards sustainability
- Sustainability is an integral part of the business model and is not only superficially incorporated.
- Sustainability is important to the customer. Economic as well as the social and ecological aspects of business are equally important.
- The product or service of the customer creates a social and / or environmental value for society and / or the environment.
Orientation product / service
Student Impact is convinced that future success lies in these two levels of sustainability and would like to support business that truly embrace them in accomplishing them.
