The necessity to transition to a green economy has never been so urgent. But the questions remain – How green is green? How do we transition to green? How do we calculate green? How do we measure the impact of green? …and many more. While the term ‘sustainability’ is more often than not used loosely to imply a myriad of activities, but it has a deeper, holistic implication that goes much beyond the surface. It has to be managed effectively and efficiently
