Environmental sustainability within the corporate structure has moved from performing a handful of disparate “green” projects to being a key factor in the future success of the business. Stakeholders are demanding that companies become more environmentally conscious. Sustainability is now driving business strategies, from building design to product formulation to environmental footprint analysis. Those who succeed in addressing the sustainability upsurge are gaining a competitive advantage. How does a company suddenly become “environmentally sustainable”?
