POCACITO webinar: Eco-innovation and business competitiveness

Eco‐innovation is the development and application of a business model, shaped by a new business strategy that incorporates sustainability throughout all business operations based on life cycle thinking and in cooperation with partners across the value chain. It entails a coordinated set of modifications or novel solutions to products (goods / services), processes, market approach and organizational structure which leads to a company’s enhanced performance and competitiveness.

There is therefore a growing need to find alternative approaches that can help to address sustainability‐ related business drivers whilst at the same time offering opportunities for growth, cost reduction and competitive advantage. Eco‐innovation is an approach that aims to fulfill these multiple requirements by identifying the key sustainability challenges and opportunities and then using these to drive changes throughout the company and its value chain, from the business strategy and business model, through to the operational level.
The presentation will show case studies of companies that have increased their competitiveness by incorporating Eco-innovation strategies.
