The financial services sector is in the front line of the green revolution, both as an investor in business, and an avid consumer of technology. Organisations the world over are for the first time having to address environmental concerns as a critical element of their day-to-day operations, public profile and investment strategy. The drive for sustainable business practices hits all aspects of the body corporate, from product innovation, through technology investment, supply chain management, distribution and customer relationships.
