ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
Major changes create opportunities, and there will inevitably some winners.
In this industry those companies that accumulate fast new capabilities will reach scale, positioning not just survive but to manage this new business environment. But companies MUST BE AWARE about future changes, especially when it’s about ENERGY and RESOURCES.
Today energy and environmental companies are facing big challenges: increasingly volatile oil price, global competition, the rise of disruptive technologies, climate changes issues and more sophisticated government regulations. These factors increase the complexity of activities and generate RISKS for even the most performing companies.
Companies that embrace new business models and adopt COMPETITIVE STRATEGIES will overcame these risks and will prosper in the next years.
Are we ready for Circular Economy?
Sophisticated regulations related to environment affect not only the environment sector.
From now on consumer packaged good companies acting on European market must redesign their business models, considering Circular Economy Package, as an opportunity to move on from linear to circular business model.
This TRANSFORMATION must be
Companies must understand packaging recovery as a strategic opportunity to generate value out of high quality resources and in this regard they must develop communication strategies to improve consumers behavior and engagement.
Local packaged goods producers need to build fast the “circular design” and the ”recovery and recycling’” models into their business strategies.
Many sectors – packaging users, retailers, service providers, and home appliance producers, building developers – can help to make this TRANSITION as seamless and painless as possible
Interesting example of Circular Economy
Despite continuing uncertainty over policy incentives and competition from historically low natural gas prices, alternative energy’s momentum continues to accelerate.
Alternative energy’s shift to the mainstream is largely complete and likely irreversible, is only a matter of time.
For alternative energy companies a rapid growth may generate some questions such as:
- Are they prepared for the organizational implications around learning and development,
- Are they ready for culture and workforce challenges?
Main trends to guard regarding alternative energy:[arrow_list]
- Renewable acquisition activity gaining popularity;
- Market for solar power development;
- Increased adaptability and flexibility of renewable energy;
- Regulatory reform driven by European states drive supports renewable growth;
- Corporations bet on renewable energy.
Alternative energy sources still confront roadblocks and perhaps a few emerging ones, but the industry continues to move forward and the overall perspective for growth is strong due to old and new trends.
Those are only two examples of inevitable changes with direct impact over companies long-run strategies. Taking into consideration the multitude of stakeholders we will need a greater collaboration to make things happen.
