Sustainable Energy Options for Business

By (author) Wolfe, Philip

Most businesses' major environmental impact comes from energy usage -- an area which companies can influence directly. The upside is that a business's cheapest unit of energy is also the least damaging to the planet: the unit you don't use. Wolfe outlines the best options for reducing energy use and improving sustainability of energy supply, both of which are likely to have a huge positive impact on the profitability and environmental performance of your business.
