The following definition on Wikipedia describes a green company quite well –

“A sustainable business, or a green business, is an enterprise that has a minimal negative impact or potentially a positive effect on the global or local environment, community, society, or economy—a business that strives to meet the triple bottom line.”

Green companies will use renewable energy as a power source with buildings that conform to green building norms. Such structures are eco-friendly, leverage natural light, and have low energy usage.

A green company will use electric vehicles for transportation and provide organic food in their cafeteria, tend to prefer a vegan diet over conventional food.

These companies will rely on digital technologies for communication, and day-to-day working will be largely paperless. The digital infrastructure will also depend on renewable power sources.

In summary, these are companies with a low carbon footprint. There is increasing realization amongst the business community that going green is good for the environment will help prepare them and sustain them in a world where the transition to a low carbon world is occurring rapidly.
