business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) announced this morning the publication of a glossary of commonly used terms that businesses can use to describe their environmental sustainability efforts and achievements. The goal, CGF says, is to provide “a common way for companies across the industry to communicate between each other and to consumers using commonly defined and understood terms such as ‘Life Cycle Assessment’, ‘Sustainable Sourcing’, ‘Natural Refrigerants’, and ‘Recyclable’. The Consumer Goods Forum Members will use this glossary for consumer and company-to-company communication.”

The glossary can be found by clicking here.
