Customers of all kinds are becoming more aware of the impact of their purchases. Businesses must be aware of the changing tide, and allow conscious customers to make financial decisions that have positive impacts on the planet. To do this, businesses must not only make the right decisions regarding sustainability but also equip themselves with the tools to communicate their environmental credentials effectively.
