The world around us is growing more focused on sustainability all the time, and that has placed mounting pressure on businesses to implement resource-conscious and environmentally friendly practices.
Consumer expectations are high; people no longer just want to feel good about the purchases or services they’re paying for, they want to feel good about the business they choose to work with. Businesses are in a tough position – they can either adhere to the wishes of their customers and get on-board, or ignore the issue and suffer the damages.
These sustainability pressures and are making themselves more evident all the time. Food companies are asking farmers to adopt growing practices that lessen fertilizer usage, and do a better job of protecting soil and water. Coca-Cola, General Mills, and Unilever – evidently feeling the pressure – have set goals to source all of their priority ingredients in a sustainable manner by 2020. In an attempt to please their increasingly mindful customer base, Walmart CEO Mike Duke announced new goals to ramp up its sustainability efforts in April.
The consumer goods and retail industries aren’t the only ones who can set impressive goals. Thankfully, there are opportunities abound when it comes to maintaining a “greener” business – and the waste you generate is no exception. Waste minimization and landfill diversion are two popular, quantifiable methods that will interest your clients and customers.
