With technological advancement and urbanization, the context of ‘Environmental Sustainability’ in the name of maintaining natural capital has become one of the world’s prime concerns. Our existence on earth, in one way or another, is connected to the well-being of the environment. A survey conducted by the WHO (World Health Organization) suggests that approx. 24% of lethal accidents or deaths are correlated to some avoidable environmental factors. To welcome the generation to come, we need to ensure a healthy environment by emphasizing on reversing the effects and minimizing damages caused by rapid urbanization due to exponential population growth and industrialization for their needs. Environmental sustainability not only focuses on the well-being of nature by practicing green projects to achieve goals but also aligns the profit of the companies with people and the planet. At the same pace of GDP rise followed by energy use, the amount of pollution increase and lead to ecological imbalance. In that case, business prosperity looks a bit cumbersome to succeed. However, a tantamount answer to that questionnaire would be ‘Renewable Energy’ which creates more jobs and less pollution for the environment. To obtain growth in profit margin, using less energy and plastic in the manufacturing process could add another dimension to mitigating pollution. To look further, we need such adjustments that incorporate both cost-benefit analysis and a long-term outlook where business companies can thrive. Hands-on guidance to the project manager about Environmental sustainability; how business companies can make the maximum profit using less environmental capital by focusing more on renewable energy or other resources that causes less pollution, tools, and plans, and the way of implementing them in action.
