In recent years, thinking green has become a profitable and somewhat inevitable strategy for industries. There is a lot of money to be made from the concept of ecology. Large businesses advocating sustainable development and integrating it throughout their practises, previously thought to be unconventional, are becoming more prevalent. * The Cascades company produces paper towel, tissue and packaging products made from recycled fibres. It has been named the world’s “greenest” paper manufacturer because of its environmentally friendly practices. They also take pride in their sustainable water and waste management. * Mountain Equipment Co-op is a co-operative with a drive for community involvement, respect for the environment, and a reduced ecological footprint. Specializing in outdoor equipment, it has become the largest retail co-operative in the country. * Montreal’s Interuniversity Research Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services (CIRAIG) has faculty who work together to develop expertise in sustainable development techniques, the life cycle of a product in the consumption chainm and managing the environmental impacts of a product from start to finish.
