Sustainability

A growing number of businesses consider “sustainability” as an important strategy with financial and environmental benefits.  According to EPA, sustainability is based on a simple principle – everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment.  Sustainable practices can accomplish the following:

  • Lower regulatory compliance costs
  • Increase operational efficiencies by reducing emissions and costs
  • Improve sales by attracting new customers
  • Improve public image and trust

Below is a list of guides, tools and other resources that business might find helpful. For more industry specific information, see Sustainability by Industry Sector, Environmental Compliance by Industry Sector and Trade Associations.
