In today’s global market place, public awareness and involvement in environmental issues has caused companies to reevaluate their commitment to environmental stewardship.  Being viewed as “Green” is no longer enough.  Companies must implement sustainable business practices and document program results in order to satisfy public scrutiny.  Implementing any new management program requires time and resources.  Implementing Sustainability Programs have provided positive results.  Prior programs have demonstrated both tangible and intangible benefits to implementing sustainable business practices.  These include financial benefits from waste reduction, energy savings and efficient use of resources, as well as enhanced company reputation and brand image.
