What is Green?

First, lets clear up the myth, going "green" is commercial suicide, its not, it is the smartest strategy for future and for growth. Many companies start out being skeptical, it is understandable, but after the costs are counted, and the knowledge that their costs are lower spreads across the business.

Businesses are using a wide range of natural resources to produce goods or deliver services that consumers (you and me) need in our day to day lives. However, finally it is being realized that resources are not limitless, they are actually finite. And the energy input to those goods and services causes an unwelcome damage to the air breathe, the water we drink (environmental pollution) and creates a carbon emission.

The energy and carbon emitted creating these products is called embodied carbon think of it as the carbon already locked into each product, and obviously the quantity of emodied carbon varies from product to product, depending the materials, processing, and transportation to the market.
