What is Green Management?
"Business" is a fundamentally commercial enterprise, where the administrator of a business seeks to lower costs and increase revenue. However, as the seriousness of environmental problems increases, businesses must make plans to lessen their impact on the environment. Adopting environmental conservation as the business corporate social responsibility, while simultaneously pursuing commercial viability, is imperative for a business to maintain continued growth. "Green Management" is a management system that involves protecting the environment while pursuing commercial viability, as well as the continued coexistence of these to ideas in future business activities. Green Management requires the independent and systematic advancement of environmental policies while still aiming for improvement in the managerial aspects of running a business. Energy efficiency improvements, such as electricity and fuel usage reduction, are representative examples of Green Management implementation.
The Green Management methodology is becoming an important factor for making commercial progress in the future. The cycle of (1) understanding a business's current environmental conservation activities, (2) evaluating methods for improvement based on assessment results, (3) creating a plan of action, (4) implementing new initiatives based on this plan, and (5) continuously evaluating and rethinking the business's current activities, is necessary to achieve continued advances in various environmental activities and to make progress as a business that adheres to the ideas of Green Management.
