Greener businesses are more profitable. They produce more with less. They're resilient to shocks. And they win loyalty from customers and staff.
But where are the best places to start? Which green initiatives will cost money and which will save money? How do you measure the carbon footprint of a business or product? How do you reduce the emissions and energy use of your buildings and vehicles? And how do you win the support and commitment of management and staff?
The Green Guide for Business answers all these questions and many more, enabling businesses and organisations of all sizes to make environmentally savvy decisions. Accessible but authoritative, it also features scores of case studies to help readers learn from other people's successes and mistakes.
From keeping ahead of environment legislation to green marketing, this handbook is indispensable for any company concerned about the planet - or the bottom line.
