As a leader, expect the future
Environmental issues have huge impact on our lives and they are always seemed to be linked with financial interests. Just think about the controversy around fracking or global warming. Furthermore, sustainability and green resources are becoming inseparable of the business world, as more and more companies either use or produce environment friendly products – from paper to power plants, from clothes to irrigation systems. Tomorrow's business executives will need to know how to incorporate managerial skills with green issues.
