From Capitol Hill to China, multi-national companies are under pressure to tweak product lines and change operations in order to be more sustainable. Corporate executives are racing against each other to stay ahead of this new trend “Going Green.” Executives from the area of sustainability are under pressure to look for ways to reduce the carbon footprint, eliminate waste, improve production facilities, conserve energy, and use water more efficiently. The concept of “Going Green” is transparent in all industries like healthcare, retail, technology, consumer goods, financials, utilities, energy, and materials.
Why are many companies creating areas specifically dedicated to Sustainability and Green Initiatives?
