Why and Why Now?
Decision makers’ concerns about environmental issues have doubled over the past four years. These executives are now being asked to quantify and reduce corporate energy use and environmental footprints. Consumers increasingly make buying decisions based on a vendor’s environmental credentials. While actual global financial crisis may divert some of our attention from issues of corporate social responsibility, a comprehensive policy to increase energy efficiency and reduce materials and waste continues to provide immediate opportunities for cost savings, profit improvement and product creation.
