As The Economist points out, there has long been a debate about whether companies should maximize shareholder value, or pursue the social and environmental goals of sustainability. But this doesn’t have to be a debate at all: Companies that recognize the contribution of people and the environment to business success are more profitable in the long term.
Companies play a more expansive role in the communities they are a part than simply providing a product or a service. Businesses provide jobs, they are a part of the physical landscape with their offices, retail stores, and production facilities; they have relationships with other businesses, including vendors and distributors, and the local government; and their managers and employees are a part of and participate in community life. This web of relationships means that businesses have a reputation to maintain. That reputation is built by providing quality products and services at a reasonable price, paying workers fairly and looking after their health and on-the-job safety, and not breaking the law. Provided there is a demand for what they are selling, and they can manage their costs, such businesses should profit.
