Companies around the globe are realizing business value by increasing commitments to environmental sustainability. In fact, today more than ever, environmental sustainability is at the forefront of public policy debate—whether as the focus of innovative scientific research or through local and global policy initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. This increased attention to global environmental concerns provides you with the incentive to assess your company’s environmental impacts—such as use of natural resources and carbon footprint—and offers the opportunity to integrate comprehensive sustainability targets and programs into its business strategies and corporate responsibility programs. Like all of us as individual citizens, corporate citizens—regardless of size or industry—can improve environmental sustainability at least incrementally and sometimes in transformative ways. Every positive action, no matter how small, can be the first step to creating a virtuous cycle of sustainability. Whether through creating targeted employee green teams, committing to establishing more eco-friendly supply chains, or developing best practices for reducing harmful or excessive waste, companies that promote environmental sustainability as a corporate citizenship imperative can become leaders in the movement to create a sustainable planet, society, and economy for future generations.
