How Much Can Business Influence the Environment?

Posted Monday, December 17th, 2012 by admin Filed under Blog

Our first blog, How Sustainability Can Save Business, reframes the common purpose of traditional Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practitioners — that of “saving the environment.” Our premise: Given the social and economic frameworks and institutions of our society, more can be accomplished (and faster) by viewing sustainability as an economic opportunity relevant to business, compared to viewing it as an environmental initiative in isolation of business. Therefore the goal of “saving the environment” may be more appropriately framed as “saving business.”

Well put I like the way you rephrased that from “saving the environment” may be more appropriately framed as “saving business.”
