Most businesses now recognise the importance of minimising their impact on the environment, both locally and within their supply chain.
Each business has a legal responsibility for its impact on the environment. Many businesses are realising that acting in a socially and environmentally responsible way is more than just an ethical duty but can also have and impact on financial benefits.
It can also have benefits to the reputation of your business. When making their purchasing decisions, many consumers consider how environmentally friendly a product or service is. This includes other businesses who may be looking to ensure their supply chain is sustainable, as well as domestic consumers looking to be environmentally friendly in their homes.
