You might have heard about the Energy Department’s recent decision to set aside funds to help improve the energy efficiency of commercial buildings. It’s great that they want to get involved and to encourage companies to “green up” their operations and facilities. The government, though, can’t do everything.
Not every company that wants a reduction in it’s carbon footprint is going to get a grant from the government to help that happen. That does not mean, though, that you shouldn’t still make eco-friendly changes if you can afford to do so, especially since most of those environmentally friendly changes aren’t all that expensive...when you factor in the amount of money you’ll save on your utilities and supplies over the long term.
