Our mission

Accelerate the economic transition towards a sustainable business model.

 

What is SEA ?

The aim of SEA is to accelerate the economic transition towards a sustainable business model and to demonstrate that this approach generates enhanced value as well as profit.

 

SEA is a non profit association, totally independent of any kind of lobby, political trend or corporation.

Who is SEA ?

The members of SEA are managers or experts. They are active in the business in Belgium and in Europe.

 

Government and private companies provide their support to the association in the framework of its mission and activities.

What SEA is not

  • CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility)
  • Just another pretext for networking between managers
 

Why SEA ?

Sustainability imposes itself to companies when developing their strategy and their business model. 4 reasons for that :

  • Increasing rarity of raw materials.
  • Continuous cost increase for energy, logistics, mobility, …
  • Increased regulation, public incentives and penalties.
  • Sustainability becomes an increasingly important purchase criteria for their customers.

Companies that integrate sustainability into their core decision-making processes are able to create new sources of value and to enhance their profitability, ensuring their future in this changing world.
