23. Different Organizations’ Green Supply Chain Management and LEED

In recent years, public attitude and opinion have changed remarkably regarding the way in which the environment is viewed. Over the past decade, many studies have been conducted regarding how the earth’s environment is being destroyed due to the way in which people consume many of the earth’s natural resources without replacing them, along with the harmful pollution that is continually pumped into the environment.

This change in attitude has primarily been brought about due to increased awareness of the harm caused by everyday lifestyle choices. The resulting attitude shift has sparked campaigns focused on educating people on how to make a difference. This shift increases pressure on organizations to improve their operations to reduce the amount of harm they cause on the environment. Consumer awareness has resulted in different buying choices being made based on which companies are cognizant of environmental protection strategies. This has forced many organizations to change the way they operate and learn new ways to operate a sustainable organization.
