Sustainability Consulting Opportunities
Ernest D. Weiler
As the public grows more and more demanding of business' stewardship role over natural resources and environmental protection, the need for companies to effectively manage environmental, safety and health issues becomes very important. Environmental sustainability is a watchword today. Leading companies view sustainability challenges as new opportunities for growth and development, while small companies often do not have the expertise to take advantage of these new business opportunities. The challenges associated with sustainable development are multifaceted, involving economic, social and environmental concerns. These concerns are altering business strategies and practices. Consultants need to be aware of these changes in the business world. This presentation will highlight some trends which you might consider in your consulting practices.
