“TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE”


Understand your carbon footprint defined as l.jpg

CALCULATOR

  • The amount of carbon generated by any given product or process.

  • For action there is a resulting carbon trail.

  • Measured in tons of carbon dioxide.

  • Green Awareness Training, HVAC Excellence

UNDERSTAND YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINTDefined as:

RAINWATER HARVESTINGhttp://www.gm.com/corporate/responsibility/environment/news/2006/leed-cert_080406.jsp

LANSING GM DELTA ASSEMBLY PLANT, 2006

Non-manufacturing water use has been reduced by 45 percent, for a savings of over 4.1 million gallons of water annually.

Rainwater is collected from the roof by a cutting-edge roof drain system. It is then stored in cisterns above rest rooms and is used instead of potable water to flush toilets.

Waterless urinals that use a filter-based technology save over 1 million gallons of water annually.
