Green marketing

Being a lean, green, sustainable business can be great for your marketing profile. Letting your customers know about the initiatives in your business that help you reduce waste, conserve water, reduce energy use and carbon emissions is a great way to position your business as a responsible part of your community and a good corporate citizen. 

If you are going to make direct claims about your products or services that pertain to their environmental or health impacts, you must be sure that these claims are legitimate, and that you can substantiate them.
