The sustainability of the environment is a major concern among both the business professionals as well as the shoppers across the globe. All those involved in this business accept the importance attached to environmental sustainability. The organization understands and acknowledges the need to take care of the environment and to pay attention to environmental issues. It also recognizes the steadily evolving effect the operations of the organizations have on communities where products are prepared and sold (McElroy and Engelen, 2012).
Using constant analysis, it aims to improve and implement techniques, which have the power to decrease environmental footprint. In addition, while evolving these techniques, it is seen that long-term sustainable partnerships are promoted throughout the world. The sustainability initiatives do not always directly influence the supply chain as well as the logistics, but they improve the operations slightly at times (Brady, 2005). Two of the top commitments of the organization are the reduction of emission of greenhouse gasses and creating more awareness about the importance of environmental stewardship for any organization.
Reducing the number of wastes is a major challenge in ensuring environmental sustainability. The reduction of the waste is made through collaboration with other organizations, getting involved in conservation projects and reducing the emission of carbon. The method adopted in this case is that of the three Rs namely, reduction, reuse, and recycling of products. This method helps in fulfilling environmental stewardship programs, which are short term based. There is the need for monitoring the energy consumption levels continuously (Mohrman and Shani, 2011). The employees are efficient and trained to deliver their work attaining the least possibility of creating industrial waste.
