They know they can really win over customers' trust and loyalty – plus, they'll be following the rules (that are only going to get tougher)!

These aren't just rules to follow; think of them as part of a bigger push to make carbon reduction and social responsibility core elements of business operations. It's about changing decision-making and operations to benefit the planet and society, which is also good for business.
