An introductory explanation of sustainability presented in a business context.

The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that the world could save $2.9 trillion every year by the year 2030 if it eliminated waste – put simply: if businesses used their resources (raw materials, labour and energy) more efficiently.

This video provides an introductory explanation of sustainability and business with an overview on how multi-million dollar household-name businesses have reduced waste to increase productivity, enjoy substantial cost savings, increase profits, and create jobs.
