Green Awards highlight steps to sustainability and greater profits.

The Chamber of Commerce recognized six local companies with awards for sustainable business practices. The keynote speaker at the awards ceremony, Vijay Kanal of Kanal Consulting, offered evidence for how sustainable practices enhance a business's bottom line.


Kanal Consulting conducted a study of 25 leading companies on Fortune 500 lists to identify and help implement sustainable practices at more companies. This study found that "companies are realizing that 'being green' is not just the right thing to do but is also an important catalyst for value creation."


Kanal Consulting offers insights and a short list of 12 Steps to sustainable business practices. Step #8 encourages companies to "introduce technologies and policies to reduce business travel and commuting, with tools such as video conferencing and remote support services." This practice is already being adopted by companies in our region, including the City of San Luis Obispo.


Read about all twelve of Kanal Consulting's Steps to become a part of the sustainability movement and improve your bottom line.
