The effort among businesses to go green grows stronger every year, and with good reason. Green practices not only save businesses money, they also keep them competitive as more and more consumers make buying decisions based on a company’s carbon footprint.
A 2013 study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology showed that sustainability is now a permanent part of 70 percent of corporate agendas. Additionally, the Conscious Consumer Report: Redefining Value in a New Economy, a study by Branding and Integrated Marketing, a New York-based marketing research firm, found about 70 percent of respondents “avoid purchasing from companies whose practices they disagree with.”
In an effort to go green, many companies are hiring or contracting with “green” consultants. Not only do these consultants help businesses comply with environmental regulations, they can also help businesses save money by reducing internal waste and utility costs.
