The author reflects on the sustainability efforts of companies in the U.S. Almost nine out of 10 people are identifying themselves as conscious consumers, more likely to buy from companies that make energy-efficient products and promote health and safety benefits. The author says sustainability is a vast idea with a huge number of ways that companies can get involved. The Grocery Manufacturers Association and the Food Marketing Institute are doing a great job of trying to raise awareness of the issue among members.
