Many corporations have already identified, implemented, and promoted changes to products or services that make product production and/or service use more environmentally sound. But the markets for products and services, at both the business and consumer level, are becomming more environmentally aware and sophisticated every day. These market changes present risks and opportunities that product portfolio and market strategies must address. As you 'green' your supply chain, your customers are greening their supply chains.

What can you do today to prepare for an environmentally uncertain future?
