Corporate Environmental Sustainability
To successfully compete today, corporate leaders must embrace environmental sustainability as a way to not just serve “green consumers” but as a way to achieve market and industry leadership. As companies seek to harness the opportunities that exist in environmental sustainability, they are rethinking their business models and putting sustainability at the core of their business strategy. First movers are well along the way in making their operations more efficient and cost-effective and in developing the products and services of tomorrow – today.
The Silicon Valley Leadership Group advocates on behalf of and assists member companies with development of environmentally responsible business practices, policies and products by: presenting the annual Silicon Valley Environmental Sustainability Symposium, which provides participants with the opportunity to dialogue and access the tools, resources and strategies to help create competitive advantage through environmental initiatives; and leading the Silicon Valley Sustainable Products Taskforce, which is identifying areas of opportunity to advance principles to help encourage the widespread use of more efficient technologies and processes to benefits business and consumers.
