I work for a big, global corporation. Most people don't usually equate large companies with green initiatives or promoting alternative energy. But I'm very proud to say that my company puts "Sustainability" as one of our key factors of success, right alongside more traditional corporate goals like "Shareholder value" and "Quality."
When the rubber hits the road, promoting sustainable energy is often about finding the right fit for the local environment, and being cost effective. It's not always "sexy" or "cool." Here are a few sustainable energy projects that my company has either implemented, or helped another organization implement.
