While service industries don't have smokestacks and may have less environmental impacts than a manufacturing facility, they too can benefit from sustainable business strategies to mitigate risks and capture new business opportunities. 
 
However, it is not uncommon for service based business owners to falsely believe that their business it too small or too service based to benefit from the rewards of "greening" their business.  Common myths include:
  
• Sustainability does not apply to our business.
• Our company does not offer a green product or service.
• Sustainability concepts end up costing more.
• I do not see the personal benefits of sustainability.
• Business sustainability is for larger, global organizations.
• Only manufacturing operations can benefit from benefit from a sustainable supply chain.
• Sustainability is only about the environment.
• It's all a passing trend
 
All misconceptions and the business landscape is changing.  The requirements to maintain a sustainable business today are quite different than they were just ten years ago.   Companies on the leading edge are evaluating the economic, social and environmental impacts that will ultimately affect profitability.  Green business practices are becoming more and more the norm, as companies both large and small realize the value of integrating eco awareness and sustainability concepts into their operations and business strategies.   Click here to read why service industries should master sustainability
