Sustainability is not about knitting your own sandals or hugging trees (although maybe after reading this, you might be compelled to do one or the other); sustainability is a business strategy and it is good for business – plain and simple.

Sustainability is about future-proofing your business, managing resources more efficiently, eliminating waste and connecting with the community and environment where you operate.
