In a recent post on the Huffington Post Green blog, Steven Cohen of Columbia University’s Earth Institute outlined the roles today’s federal and local governments must play in the building of a more sustainable economy.
As a company immersed in the sustainability of assets in both public and private sectors – including government, hospitality and higher education – The Refinishing Touch echoes the need for a rise in nationwide environmentalism.
Cohen’s outline of governmental responsibilities included ‘investment in sustainability infrastructure’, among others. As the population continues to grow, the need for green from the ground up only increases. When government edifices, and buildings in any realm, are built with sustainability and the eco-system in mind, green practices typically remain instilled in the community and the building itself throughout its life.
Down the road, furniture assets will be weathered and facility managers whom have immersed themselves in eco-conscious behavior from the start will look towards refurbishment rather than replacement.
With refinishing, reupholstery and remanufacturing services such as ours, existing pieces receive a more modern look and feel, restored durability and drastically reduce environmental effects. By implementing furniture asset management, trees and unnecessary waste are saved from the landfill and carbon emissions are cut by as much as 124 tons.
