Business can play a very important role in the sustainable development of our community. This can happen in obvious ways such as the many businesses that install water tanks or solar panels. But all businesses - big and small - can have an impact in the way they carry out their day to day operations such as transportation, paper use, and energy or water consumption.
Today's consumer is also a lot more environmentally aware and expects businesses to enact practical measures that save our natural resources and limit waste.
The Community Environment Network started the Sustainable Business Network as a way for businesses to educate themselves and the public about best environment business practise. It is also an excellent resource for the public to inform their purchasing decisions.
