Before We Begin
Two reminders before we begin today
This is not a presentation about changing light bulbs or recycling water
bottles. Although change begins with simple tasks and low
hanging fruit, we will focus on the Treasury Management industry and
trends in the business community at large.
Sustainable Treasury Management does not just apply to Fortune 500
companies. You will learn that in many cases, small businesses are
more involved with and better leveraged to implement go green and
eco-friendly campaigns.
Sustainable Treasury Management impacts all areas of the business community

Situation Analysis – Environmental Fast Facts






Each year, Americans throw away enough paper and plastic cups,
spoons, forks, and knives to circle the Earth 300 times
Recycling one ton of paper saves the energy equivalent of 185
gallons of gasoline
Recycling 1 million laptops saves enough energy to power 3,657
homes for an entire year
It takes 90% less energy to recycle aluminum cans than to produce
new ones
Making 2,000 pounds of paper from recycled paper saves up to 17
trees and uses 50% less water than creating paper from original pulp
Over 1.7 million tons of plastic water bottles are produced annually
in the U.S. requiring the energy equivalent of over 500 million
barrels of oil – approximately 75% of those bottles are not recycled
Clean Air Council, 2012
Aluminum cans can take up to 500 years to decompose, but only 6 weeks to recycle
