The majority of small business owners are taking steps to commit to sustainable, clean energy initiatives reveals scientific opinion polling out of Colorado. Polls surveyed small business owners in Colorado following the announcement that the U.S. government has set aside more than 285,000 acres in six states – Colorado, Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah – for solar energy projects.
On the heels of that announcement, three fourths of Colorado small business owners agreed that government commitment and investment in renewable, sustainable energy and energy efficiency are pivotal in supporting the recovering economy and in the creation of new jobs.
Many small business owners have already implemented their own clean energy projects, with 61 percent reporting that they have installed energy efficient light bulbs, appliances, windows, insulation and energy-saving heating and air conditioning systems.
At The Refinishing Touch, we do our part through the offering of sustainable furniture asset management services, which include refinishing, reupholstering, remanufacturing and restoration. Already, we’ve contributed to a three-ton reduction in carbon emissions, and at the same time saved our clients more than 80 percent in costs.
Choosing renewable business practices not only benefits the environment, but it also redirects expenditures to allow business owners to invest in growth initiatives, rather than the costs of replacing an entire collection of worn furniture, for example.
