  • The way we see it, the future must be green. From the technology itself to the way we manage it, we must do better. For businesses, energy consumption, chemical management, recycling, etc., continue to be challenges across the globe. Particularly data centers that can be 10-20x more energy intensive than a typical office space. For consumers, protecting the environment has become a social and generational calling. Energy efficiency and climate change are top of mind, as demand on the power grid begins to impact electricity bills. For governments, the question is how to demonstrate climate change leadership while at the same time staying responsive to a range of constituent demands.

It seems everywhere you look, businesses are going green.

Going green also helps companies build goodwill with customers, workers, shareholders and the general public. But there’s no reason that big business should have all the fun and reap all the rewards of going green. Small businesses have the same interest in cutting costs, boosting their environmental compliance and enhancing their reputation.
