Driving Business Success Through Sustainability with Silvina Skverer on HAYVN Hubcast

In this episode of HAYVN Hubcast, we delve into the dynamic realm of sustainable business practices. The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has transitioned significantly. It has moved beyond mere philanthropy to a more comprehensive approach that encompasses human rights, labor rights, diversity, and community engagement. This shift signifies that sustainability is no longer confined to environmental concerns, but extends to various facets of business operations.

Nancy sits down with Silvina Skverer, co-founder and partner at Thinking Beyond Business. Their mission is to empower businesses to find solutions to their unique needs and goals, and to guide them towards a more sustainable future. They work with business leaders who who aspire to be part of the solution, driving the integration of sustainability into their operations.

“It’s better to have an organized, meaningful, transparent, and authentic transition rather than making empty promises.” -Silvina Skverer.

Key points discussed in this episode are:

  • Challenges in Sustainability:
    • Businesses face common challenges as they try to incorporate sustainability and understand where they can make the most social and environmental impact.
  • ESG Backlash:
    • We explore the reasons behind the pushback against ESG and how businesses can navigate this landscape. The key lies in strategic thinking and foresight, focusing on long-term value creation and authenticity rather than short-term gains.
  • Educational Efforts:
    • We touch on the ongoing need to educate shareholders about the broad scope of sustainability beyond just environmental concerns.
