Individuals and businesses are being forced to respond to new emphases on improving energy efficiency, minimizing consumption and waste creation, reducing climate change pollution, and shifting to renewable energy use and production. Emerging regulations and market demands are changing the way businesses are run and are creating numerous possibilities for realizing significant economic benefits by making good environmental choices. Some of these representative changes include:
- the required reporting and reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions;
- the growing availability of tax credits and exemptions for the production and use of renewable energy;
- the provision of financial incentives for the advancement of clean energy technologies; and
- the implementation of policies mandating minimum performance standards for new and existing buildings.
Whether seeking to engage in the business of sustainability or to conduct business more sustainably, identifying, understanding and effectively adjusting to the forces behind these new trends is the only way to ensure that opportunities may be maximized and risks and liabilities minimized.
