Driving Efficiency, Reuse, and Recycling

September 25, 2018

Business Roundtable CEOs are embracing sustainability through innovation to drive new efficiencies, recover valuable resources, eliminate costs and achieve environmental outcomes. From reducing resource consumption to managing waste and embracing a circular economy, U.S. businesses are setting aggressive goals to optimize resource usage and efficiency, make supply chains greener, reuse and recycle materials, and reduce the environmental impact of their operations. 

Corporations are implementing comprehensive approaches and best practices for resource optimization by greening office buildings, improving tracking systems, refining efficiency efforts, and investing in new technologies, business models, and sustainable lifecycle strategies. 

Because of these investments, in addition to a rise in on-site generation, U.S. electricity demand has remained flat over the past decade, while economic growth has continued. Even more, businesses are taking a circular mindset to drive sustainability innovation and deliver value at every step of the process and product lifecycle.
