Not only can green business practices and processes help protect the environment, but it also helps a company improve its bottom line.The company’s carbon emission reduction program commenced as part of EPSI’s initiative towards good Corporate and Environmental Citizenship. The objective is to take responsibility for the company’s actions and encourage a positive impact through its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere.
A business that makes the decision to be environmentally-conscious will often promote goodwill among potential customers, while making the world a better place for future generations,” he said.
