稀少性和重要性:食品和飲料的資源生產率的基準 Scarcity and Materiality: Benchmarking Resource Productivity in Food and Beverage
出版日期: 2015年10月19日 內容資訊: 英文 24 Pages





  • 雖然代表關注永續性,但是圍繞消費者的產品需求競爭的資源生產率使企業的利益停留在最小限度。目前的標準幾乎沒有適應永續企業策略。


  • 企業現在,依據可用性及社會需求來檢測資源。今後,需要測量繫結產業與營運財務影響對生態系統的影響。





As we enter an era of increasing resource scarcity, consumer product companies focused on food and beverage face increasing challenges in producing their often-longstanding branded products. The combination of dwindling traditional resource access, increasing consumer awareness and activism, and changing environmental regulations make critical product inputs like water, materials, energy, packaging, and transport undergo ever greater scrutiny, with corresponding impact to the bottom line. To protect sales and margins for established products, companies seek ways to increase their resource productivity and ensure resource security by controlling total input cost variability. Thus, the search for resource productivity is really one of materiality: Which input variables are desirable and feasible to control for optimized economic impact? In this report, we demonstrate a need for detailed benchmarking and analysis that identifies superior strategies to manage risk, enables innovative technologies, and improves individual operations.

Table of Contents



  • The spotlight on sustainability shines bright, yet industry players report minimal gains as resource productivity vies with consumer product demand. Current standards demonstrate little in the way of permanent corporate strategy.


  • Companies currently measure resources based on availability and societal demands. Moving forward, the industry needs a measurement of impact to ecosystem that connects operations to financial impact.
