With the recent focus on the “greening” of the economy and promoting environmentally-friendly business practices, organizations today face sustainability challenges on all fronts. Managers of organizations in both the public and private sector are looking to improve efficiency, use fewer resources and less energy, and produce less waste, all while keeping the bottom line in mind. A balance must be struck between the long-term benefits of developing sustainable business practices and the current mindset of short-term management – managing on a quarterly or annual basis, at best.
