  3. 3. Them: “While this sounds like an interestingproject, Im afraid we dont make thesesorts of data points available.”Me: “OK, no problem. Is there any publicindustry data which you regard as highquality, which you would recommend if weremaking estimates? Also would be great toknow if [Company] has any green initiativeswhich we should be aware of in ourmodelling.”Them: “None that Im aware of, but wecontinually and relentlessly seek even moreefficient operations.”
