Today we talked about sustainability and how it can help a company’s bottom line. In today’s business environment, sustainable initiatives are no longer just a “feel good” effort; they are an important component of cost control and strategic positioning. Complying with ever increasing environmental regulations is impacting businesses from commercial real estate to manufacturing. On the show we discussed creative ways to reduce your company’s environmental impact.
We opened the show with Philip Wilheit Jr a Partner with Wilheit Packaging. Philip manages Wilheit’s sustainable packaging product lines and recycling initiatives. Their clients include several fortune 500 companies such as Mars/Wrigley, Mohawk Industries and Steelcase Industries. Wilheit sources some of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials available anywhere in the world. They have been at the forefront of the sustainability movement for years.
