As environmental awareness rises around the world, the “green sector”, which includes clean energy, social entrepreneurship, and other sustainable businesses, is expected to see explosive growth. A report by the outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas estimated the green sector may add up to 1.3 million new jobs every year by 2030! Established businesses are also seeking new ways to save money and increase profits by going green.
Green business blogs are among the media outlets tracking the expansion of the green sector.
Why Read a Green Business Blog?
Green business blogs are great ways to keep a finger on the pulse of the green business world. In addition to helping stay on top of the latest news from the green sector, they also offer ideas and inspiration to help both new and established businesses go green. They are great sources of information about sustainability best practices for everything from designing products to which cups to stock in the coffee room. And they are a great resource for advice about how going green can save money and improve your business’s bottom line.
