Asian companies discover that going green is good for business

As western multinational growth expands in Asian countries, they bring with them ideas for greener factories and waste reduction, reported a recent article in the International New York Times.

Companies have not only saved money by “going green”, but Asian factories run by Intel have cut “carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to the amount produced by 126,000 American households per year”.

Also, the demand for engineers who can implement green building technology has also opened up a job sector in places such as India.

Even though the process to change from carbon emitting factory to green factory has not taken hold of all Asian factories, consumer demand for buying green products can also affect manufacturer processes and create positive change.
