Sustainabler has been created with a simple purpose in mind, to provide a comprehensive resource centre that will enable family businesses of all sizes to source information, knowledge and practical examples of sustainability in practice and to help everyone make sustainability manageable, measurable and meaningful.
Having worked in the family business space for over 25 years, Paul Andrews and the team behind Sustainabler regularly speak to family business owners and their teams on all things family business. Over the past couple of years in particular the topic of sustainability has come more and more to the fore. For many family businesses, doing business the right way and acting as stewards or custodians of their businesses for future generations is something that is at the very core of what they do and who they are. For many, they have been pursuing a sustainability agenda without shouting about it and for some, appreciating and documenting all of the good work they continue to do.
These conversations, along with frustrations about where to go and find relevant and timely information have resulted in the creation of Sustainabler, a community of businesses that care, make a difference and are happy to be part of a community of like-minded businesses that feel the same.
Launched in early 2023, the knowledge bank will grow and become a ‘go to resource’ for the family business community when it comes to sustainability.
As Paul explains, “We have created a globally recognised family business organisation with Family Business United and we now want to use our expertise from creating FBU to add our voice to the sustainability agenda, to create a similar community on the topic to help family firms address different aspects of sustainability as a force for good and as a way to continue to take the long term view and create sustainable businesses for generations to come. We aim to bring together practical insights, research and personal stories to help family firms navigate the sustainability agenda and to help make sustainability manageable, measurable and meaningful whilst celebrating the progress made by the sector too.”
The Sustainability Agenda
