As more and more conscious millennials and younger generations saturate corporate America, companies are learning they have to innovate their operations in order to sustain their business. Lucky for them, adopting these green business initiatives can only bring more customer retention and profitability in the long-run. We’ve rounded up 7 ways your business can “greenify” itself and position itself as a socially conscious business.
