National Summary
Businesses can save money by reducing the amount of materials and energy they consume and by recycling materials. A reduction and recycling policy that establishes an organization's strategies for reducing consumption and recycling can turn materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. Many companies have established Green Teams where employee members provide resources for waste reduction and recycling.
