Rethink | Sustainability
Environmental sustainability has been defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Landscaping initiatives can include evaluating the use/application of environment friendly fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides; reducing or eliminating building and grounds landscape to conserve water; monitor watering systems to use only when needed; and establishing composting programs for organic wastes.
“Why Sustainability is Now the Key Driver of Innovation”
“Sustainability isn’t the burdern on the bottom lines that many executives believe it to be. In fact, becoming environmental-friendly can lower your costs and increase your revenues. That’s why sustainability should be a touchstone for all innovation.” “In the future, only companies that make sustainability a goal will achieve competitive advantage. That means rethinking business models as well as products, technologies and processes.” – Harvard Business Review, September 2009
