Why does sustainable innovation matter?
The need for comprehensive and systemic approaches that consider social justice, economic performance and environmental responsibility in an equal, balanced and integrated way is now well understood by companies and society. We become more aware of the individual dimensions of sustainable developments and their interdependencies, especially in times of crisis - and also how quickly framework conditions can change. Anyone who wants to launch a new successful business model today or position their business development for the future cannot avoid placing sustainability at the center. For this purpose, B Lab Switzerland uses established strategies, methods and instruments from innovation management.

How can B Lab Switzerland support you?
Our ambition is to make sustainable innovation the default option. To reach this ambition, we are working in four areas: Improving existing business models, developing SDG-driven business models, building an innovation infrastructure for SDG-driven innovation and innovation for system change. We provide companies, service providers and public institutions with the necessary knowledge and tools to develop sustainable business models and to plug sustainability into existing innovation processes. We work with them to identify the relevant levers and expand the (internal) innovation process to develop an integrated and holistic understanding of sustainability in innovation, including the necessary steps for implementing sustainable business cases.
