Ted Bardacke made a great point in his interview with UCLA Today when he stepped on as Deputy Director of the new LA Office of Sustainability. During the Q&A, he said that our economic future rests in developing and serving the markets of tomorrow, which can’t ignore the importance of the environment.
At The Refinishing Touch, we understand how the economic and environmental impacts of sustainability efforts – whether they are focused on recycling programs or large-scale renovations – should not be viewed in isolation, but are rather two measures of one overall goal towards success.
Last quarter, we asked our readers which level of government is most responsible for lowering costs through sustainable initiatives, and only 20% of you cited local government as a response.
So, what can be done to improve this? If the White House, and various local government institutions, can save nearly 60% on renovations by opting for our sustainable refinishing and re-upholstery alternatives, then more can certainly do the same – resulting in greener leadership nationwide.
We have continuously seen interest from government officials, hoteliers, and academic institutions in The Refinishing Touch’s sustainable asset management services as a way to save money and reduce carbon impacts. Sustainability and prosperity are two dimensions that all levels of municipalities must take into consideration when planning for the future – contact us today to find out how we can help you.
