Greening the World



-- Quote of the Day -- 


 “I realized that there is a connection with sustainability, we all need an economy and jobs but there has to be a way to do this sustainably …working with consumers to bridge the gap and this begins with education, understanding what the issues really are and hopefully solving them together. …Everyone, in the careers that they have, should realize that there is a difference that could be made – there is always a contribution to be made. …If you are a writer you can infuse the positive message you believe in, you can get involved in trash pick up events as a volunteer, and so on. …[Climate Counts created a] score card that dug into the deep details that shows how big business were doing to measure their green house emissions, their strategy to reduce those emissions, and how well they are reporting in a coherent manner to the public, and finally – are the companies taking a policy stance. …We want to highlight the companies that are doing well to empower consumers to buy from companies who are taking climate change a little more seriously. …It starts with leadership, it is great to see the CEO buy into sustainability, but it can also mean leadership from any level – any employee can be the champion in their company by finding out other allies that will help you champion the cause, to really make the business case for it… so the business saves energy, which saves money; we can reduce our waste which saves money… there is a business case to be made.”
