Environmental bottom line could manage and measure air and water quality, energy consumption and emissions, natural resource use, solid and toxic waste, and land use/land cover.
Environmental sustainability takes the view that the less impact your business has on the environment, and the fewer natural resources you consume, the longer and more successful your business will be.
Controlling your Environmental bottom line means managing, monitoring, and reporting your consumption of resources, including waste, and also any impacts from business practices including emissions, pollution and toxic waste.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has developed guidelines to enable businesses to report and measure their social impact including the following factors:
- Effluents and Waste
- Environmental Compliance
- Supplier Environmental Assessment
