    • Marketing Strategy
      According to an article by BusinessWeek, when companies began to focus on energy savings they must rely on companies that provide and install “clean technology” (Global Warming on Main Street). There is an opportunity for a new business to connect companies that want to focus on energy savings but do not have time or knowledge to implement needed changes.

    • Why Be Energy Efficient?
      It is important to preserve our planet.
      Wasting is expensive.
      Using too many resources make people less efficient.
      Wasting energy leads to lower standards of living, higher costs, shrinking income, and social anxiety.
      Moving the economy toward resource productivity can increase overall levels and quality of employment while reducing the impact we have on the environment.

      Being waste-wise can mean:
      1. more efficient and effective organization
      2. reduced waste management costs
      3. better use of limited natural resources.
