WasteWise update : moving toward sustainability

Author: EPA

The sustainability continuum represents a gradual widening of organizational perspective and responsibility from an immediate group of facilities, suppliers, and customers to society as a whole. This Update is designed to inspire your organization to use WasteWise to help set your organization on the road to sustainability. Doing so will help keep your organization competitive in the new paradigm of interaction among society, the economy, and the environment. Ray Anderson, chairman and chief executive officer of Interface, Inc., has captured the necessity of this transformation: ‘In the 21st century, as the (next industrial revolution) gathers speed, I believe the winners will be the resource efficient. At whose expense will they win. At the expense of the resource inefficient. Technology at its best, emulating nature, will eliminate the inefficient adapters.’ Make sure your organization adapts.
