More and more consumers are making purchasing decisions based on a product’s or company’s environmental impact. This means they are also beginning to demand more information about how products are made. The reality is that many companies don’t have a complete understanding of their environmental impacts. If your company falls into this category, begin by collecting information about your organization’s use of resources and that of its suppliers. This information can help you make decisions to save money, focus on more efficient processes, or build stronger relationships with suppliers that have better efficiency records. While making this data available to consumers may not be feasible in the short-term, collecting the data is a positive first step to begin shrinking your company’s environmental footprint and capturing valuable savings.
