How Does Engineered Thatch Help Meet Corporate Sustainability Goals?

In recent years, many companies throughout the world are seeking ways to incorporate sustainable practices into their organization. This comes as no surprise since many businesses face evident benefits as they become more and more sustainable. From economic advantages to social credibility, the results of pursuing positive impact through sustainability is an intriguing prospect, though it is not always easy for business owners and managers to work out how to implement it into their organizational operations. 

At Endureed, we’ve helped numerous companies begin their path to sustainability by supplying environmentally friendly building materials with our engineered thatch products. But what is corporate sustainability, is it relevant to your business, and how does engineered thatch fit into the picture? Let’s dive into all the details you need to know. 

What is Corporate Sustainability? 

Broadly speaking, corporate sustainability is a strategic approach for businesses that creates both sustainable and long-term value for the shareholder, customer, employee, environment, and society. Sustainability is certainly a buzzword that tends to make us think of actions like recycling and planting trees, but corporate sustainability is much more than that. In fact, corporate sustainability is viewed in the political and business environment as falling under the umbrella of ESG, or environmental, social, and governance practices. 

The goal for ESG, therefore, is to take steps in order to ensure that a company can holistically benefit the world around them, including all stakeholders that may interact with the business or be impacted by it secondarily. This may include, but is not limited to, investing in renewable energy, reducing waste, improving employee work environments, linking business operations to a socially responsible cause, increasing transparency, and promoting regulatory compliance. 

The Benefits of Implementing Corporate Sustainability Practices

There are many benefits of implementing corporate sustainability practices. For many, the main benefit is that there tends to be increased profit from operations. This is usually due to the fact that renewable energy and waste reduction lead to lower overall costs, but the benefits also extend to a better brand image and improved competitive advantage because customers are more likely to do business with companies that share the same values as them. Corporate sustainability also leads to better employee recruitment and retention, increased productivity, and more thorough legal compliance.

Some correlate corporate sustainability with change, and for that reason try to avoid it, but corporate sustainability is an overwhelmingly positive pursuit that can help reap significant advantages for companies of all sizes. 

What is Engineered Thatch? 

One quick, easy, and worthwhile way to immediately jumpstart corporate sustainability is to invest in sustainable and safe building materials, and engineered thatch is the perfect solution. Engineered thatch is a unique roofing material that boasts all the natural beauty and timeless charm of traditional thatch, but it is created using a proprietary blend of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material is 100% recyclable and incredibly durable, making it environmentally friendly with resilience rivaling the strongest building materials available in the industry. This resilience makes engineered thatch fully fire, pest, rot, and hurricane-resistant (capable of withstanding category 5 hurricane winds), and it is backed by a 20-year warranty, speaking to its impressive longevity. 

Engineered Thatch: The Future of Sustainability

When considering corporate sustainability, it’s wise to view engineered thatch through the lens of ESG (environment, social and governance). From an environmental point of view, the use of engineered thatch is an investment into long-lasting, recyclable materials – this means far less waste and no negative impact on the environment. From a social benefit standpoint, the environmental benefits of engineered thatch help to promote one of the most important social causes, and its durability and safety help protect employees and customers who may utilize your company’s facilities. Finally, from a governance standpoint, engineered thatch ensures your organization is meeting regional, national, and international sustainability goals and regulations while working towards future resilience against climate change threats.
