CARBON FOOTPRINTING

In manufacturing and service businesses, the debate over pollution continues. Carbon Footprinting is a continuous improvement baseline for all business models. Large Producers (25,000 metric tons of C02 per year) know the regulations. If exempt, Carbon Footprinting is the cornerstone of many sustainability efforts, identifying pollutants that damage equipment, compromise health, and put your company at risk. All businesses can benefit from pollution control and sustainability practices that protect your operation. Carbon Footprinting also increases consumer opinion and sales, keeps employee absenteeism low, and increases profitability through conservation. Monitoring promotes waste reduction, opens the door for emerging green business, and puts you in the news as a community caretaker. With new regulations emerging daily, be ahead of the curve and compliance ready with this excellent program.
