“What began as a seemingly altruistic endeavor, then shifted to a way to cut costs and improve reputation, has become a fundamental business competency, alongside accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, customer service, procurement, knowledge management and others. Indeed, in some firms, green thinking is becoming embedded in each of these other disciplines, increasingly woven into the corporate fabric. That has made green strategy and practices ever more valued, seen by top brass as a way to cut costs, improve operations, foster innovation, engage employees and satisfy customers — all critical during tough economic times.”
