It is a concept of alternative worldviews in search of social structures, economic activities, accounting procedures, production and consumption patterns, and technologies that empower and improve the lives of all present people and guarantee quality lives for future generations.”(uwsp.edu) There are certain characteristics that can be applied to businesses that are attempting to conserve resources.
