12 February 2009 — 5:00 PM

Businesses need to improve their green practices if they are to protect their future, it has been suggested.

In news that may convince companies to recycle mobile phones when trading up to the latest contracts, a spokeswoman for corporate development firm A T Kearney said it was vital for firms to consider eco-responsibility.

Margaret Hansen, global procurement director of corporate travel for the group, noted that some of the first questions that are now asked of a company include "are you green?" and "do you recycle?".

"The next generation are expecting to do business with people that have a conscious awareness and are actually taking action in their organisation," she added.

Ms Hansen's comments were directed at visitors to the Business Travel Show, which began on February 10th and runs until the 12th at London's Earls Court.

In other news, a £12 million recycling plant opened in Newport this week in order to help businesses adhere to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive - which was introduced in January 2007.
