Businesses are facing increasing pressure to go green, especially in the manufacturing and energy industries. Renewed efforts by governments around the world to combat climate change mean tightened environmental regulations for these sectors.

Failure to do so could mean a big reputational hit and the threat of litigation from the EPA and other government bodies.
