La fabrication des appareils électroniques, notamment des ordinateurs portables, concentre les nuisances environnementales (émissions de gaz à effet de serre, pollutions, épuisement des ressources non renouvelables, etc.). 

Pour une durée de vie active de 5 ans, la phase de production d’un ordinateur portable comptabilise en moyenne 56 % des émissions de gaz à effet de serre contre 36 % pour son utilisation !

The Corporate Sustainability Beauty Contest: Making Room for Full Product Transparency

The Corporate Sustainability Beauty Contest: Making Room for Full Product Transparency | sustainable innovation | Scoop.it

We are at least 10 years into the corporate sustainability journey now, so what really significant changes have we achieved?

 

Perhaps the business world has focused on the wrong tasks? Could it be that, despite all the carbon neutrality claims, hundreds of Global Reporting Initiative [GRI] A+ reports and sustainability teams of ten or more people, companies have still not radically redesigned their core products and business models?

I believe that there has been far too much focus on companies wanting to look good, and not nearly enough attention paid to actually performing well.

 

It’s in the blood of companies to compete, to strive to be better than their peers. That has been the reason for the success of corporate sustainability, because businesses like to vie with each other to be the best in this area. But the end result of all the competition has been to encourage companies to give the impression of looking good while barely changing their ‘business as usual’ model. It’s hard to change the direction of a business, especially in the short term, but a disappointingly low level of achievement has nonetheless characterized the corporate sustainability beauty contest.

 

An entire industry has been created around this beauty contest, including thousands of labels, corporate responsibility (CR) report design agencies, boutique assurance providers, hundreds of awards with infinite categories, materiality matrix mavericks, investor questionnaires consultants, professional stakeholders looking to ‘engage’ with companies and all manner of membership organizations offering support networks for a hefty fee.

Et si on partageait la valeur ? | weave Blog

Et si on partageait la valeur ? | weave Blog | sustainable innovation | Scoop.it

Changer de paradigme : passer de la « corporate social responsibility » à la « creation of shared value ».

 

Il y aurait d’un côté la valeur économique, et de l’autre les valeurs sociales, les deux n’entrant que très rarement en contact – sauf pour une lutte à mort.

C’est à cette vision binaire que s’est attaqué Michael Porter, un des professeurs de stratégie d’entreprise les plus reconnus dans le monde, en faisant paraitre, à l’étonnement général, en 2011 un article fondamental intitulé « Creating shared value » dans la Harvard Business Review. Il y faisait deux constats principaux.

Marketing isn't broken. Big companies are just risk averse. Successful small businesses will always take the creative approach to marketing, because they have to (and they either don't have access to big data or don't know how to use it).
