If you are here then you have a goal in mind. These goals often range from 100% renewable resource consumption and 0 waste, to simply appeasing stakeholders and improved public perception.
The goals of appeasing stakeholders or saving operating cost are in reality the same thing. It has been proven time and time again that effective energy management programs and sustainability initiatives have short direct returns on investment and display real social responsibility improvements.
We will work closely with your people to develop a plan that works best for your company. Several sustainable solutions can be done at little to no cost and some are more complex than they seem. Sometimes things like solar panels or wind turbines are just a huge waste of money that could be directed at smaller projects that provide better results.
