Business sustainability is the practice of operating a business without impacting the environment negatively. A green business functions in the best interests of the local and global environment, meaning it supports the community and economy dependent on a healthy planet. An environmentally aware business considers more than just profits — it considers its impact on society and the environment. Such a business is sustainable because it contributes to the health of the structure within which it operates, thereby helping construct an environment in which the business can thrive. The three components of the triple bottom line are profits, people, and the planet. A sustainable business earns profits by being socially responsible and protecting our use of the planet’s resources.
In keeping with CMA CGM’s Go-Green Initiative, as solar power can help reduce CO2 emissions by virtue of being a clean and renewable source of energy. CCLPD has installed 250kwp solar panels at its premises and is approaching to enhance its capacity to 500kwp. As a tangible, easily quantifiable, green energy asset, solar power is an extremely effective way to meet sustainability targets. While some call it “instant decarbonisation,” commercial solar energy lowers a property’s carbon footprint the moment it begins operating and thus moving towards Group’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
