In the past several years, sustainability has been a big and important issue. Homeowners look for ways to make their homes more energy-efficient to reduce their carbon footprint. Meanwhile, business owners and executives look for ways to make their operations more sustainable. In a business perspective, sustainable development refers to the ability for a business to keep on growing, while maintaining financial stability and minimizing negative environmental and societal impacts. Developing your business towards sustainability does more than helping the environment. This strategy can also potentially help to reduce operational costs, control risks, improve reputation, and acquire new business opportunities.
