How do you boost sales with sustainability?

Indhold fra partner Hvad er dette?

De Forenede Dampvaskerier (DFD) has turned sustainability into a competitive advantage. Get hands-on insights into how they do this at the miniconference on 9 November 2017 in Copenhagen.

For several years De Forenede Dampvaskerier (DFD) - one of Scandinavia’s largest service companies within the textile rental and laundering sector – has worked with sustainability as an integrated part of its business strategy

Therefore it has only been a natural development for DFD to extend these efforts into their sales approach. By placing sustainability at the core of its value proposition, DFD has managed to attract and retain customers, thereby turning its sustainable focus into a true competitive advantage. 

A value-based sales approach

For DFD’s customers sustainability is also becoming a business parameter - especially in the public sector.

"It is our experience that the municipalities​ and regions increasingly are asking about environmental and CSR certifications, and often they also want concrete cases," explains DFD's Section Manager, Jan H. Matthiesen. 

In order to be able to meet these requests DFD has developed a value-based sales approach, which in practice means asking specific questions in order to determine how – and if – CSR can become a value adding parameter for the customer. 

“If the customer indicates that our sustainable efforts and know-how could bring value to their business, we emphasize this in the sales process. If sustainability has little or no relevance at all, we do not mention it for the customer,” explains DFD's Section Manager, Jan H. Matthiesen.   

This segmented approach to CSR has given DFD an unique value proposition and a preferred supplier status for many customers.
