Sustainability is a business response to the changing global environment.  Sustainability is defined as economic development that meets the need of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

  • Build operating margins by eliminating wastes
  • Build revenue by anticipating customer need for better, safer, and more environmentally aligned products and services
  • Reduce liability by eliminating hazards to workers and customers before regulators require compliance and before competitors
  • Be a part of the core business
  • Be a potential profit center
  • Be an investment- considered like any other long term investments
