May 13, 2008 — Small and mid-sized businesses can now “green” their operations at no cost with the Web-based tool, the “Greening Advisor,” developed by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), an environmental organization.
“Greening” means a company reviews its operations and supply chains to reduce environmental impacts. Available at www.nrdc.org/greeningadvisor, the Greening Advisor provides a range of environmentally friendly steps companies can take to promote energy efficiency, conserve water, reduce waste, minimize paper usage, and improve their financial bottom line.
The Advisor is particularly appropriate for small-to-mid-sized businesses across all industries that want to reduce their environmental footprint without hiring consultants.
“NRDC wanted to provide this valuable tool at no charge to ensure the authenticity of corporate greening efforts and make certain that companies have the benefit of the most current and credible resources,” said Dr. Allen Hershkowitz, NRDC senior scientist. “All businesses have an environmental impact, so … taking steps toward improving the environmental performance of your business helps to ensure a clean and healthy environment for future generations, as well as a healthy and more efficient economy.”
