As disciples of Christ we are called to look after the environment. In B4T we look to do this in practical ways, and as businesses are evaluated in regards Kingdom Impact, the environmental impact is evaluated directly and indirectly.

A business might not have a direct impact on the natural environment, but could be part of supporting social and environmental programs.
Business structure: high ethical practice and a striving for excellence.
Relationships of integrity with government and other authorities.
