Sustainable business is more than just taking into consideration the environmental health of the planet. It is about innovation, making money, and creating and implementing practical solutions to solving great challenges: not only within a company, but throughout society.
The businesses that are thriving and leading in today’s 21st century economy are those that run a lean supply chain, perform well beyond any regulatory requirements, and operate on a sustainable business model. They do it not because an impulse to operate sustainably leaves them feeling warm and fuzzy, but because calculated management decisions lead to reduced risk, lower operation costs, profitable and unexpected outcomes.
