Businesses have a significant impact on current environmental problems. Their need for natural resources of all kinds—energy, water, paper, furniture, supplies, and equipment, not to mention cleaning and landscaping chemicals and provisions for meetings and conferences—put a tremendous strain on our planet.
But offices also have the potential to nudge society in a more eco-friendly direction. As companies—large, small, and in between—construct greener buildings and develop green purchasing and operational policies that increase demand for earth-friendly products and services, suppliers will strive to meet that demand by shifting production to environmentally sensitive alternatives.
