Resource efficiency is key to sustainability — whether we’re talking raw materials, design for reuse, carbon and other “externalities,” or unnecessary food waste. Sustainability and corporate responsibility are no longer “nice-to-haves.” They are business imperatives — and tackling resource use, both inside and outside your own four walls, will prove crucial for companies as we move through the 21st century. In this series sponsored by Sealed Air, we’ll take a fresh look at resources and how they are used. We’ll go beyond natural resources like air and water to look at how efficiency in raw materials can boost the bottom line and help the environment. We’ll also examine the circular economy and design for reuse — with an eye toward honoring those resources we do have.
