It has now permeated the mainstream to the point where businesses across the globe realize that adopting an environmentally sound philosophy is essential – not only to maintain credibility and protect the bottom line, but also to attract the best employees. People expect business to be at the fore with regard to sustainability – to lead changes in thinking and behaviour.
