eight things to do

Here are 8 simple things you can do and how much carbon dioxide you’ll save doing them.

  1. Change a light - Replacing one regular bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb will save 150 pounds of carbon dioxide a year.
  2. Drive Less - Walk, Bike, carpool or take mass transit more often. You’ll save one pound of carbon dioxide for every mile you don’t drive.
  3. Recycle more - You save 2400 pounds of carbon dioxide per year by recycling just half of your household waste.
  4. Check your tires - Keeping your tires inflated properly can improve gas mileage by more than 3%. Every gallon of gas saved keeps 20 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the air.
  5. Use less hot water - It takes a lot of energy to heat water. Use less hot water by installing a low flow showerhead = 350 pounds of CO2 saved per year, and washing your clothes in cold or warm water = 500 pounds of CO2 saved per year.
  6. Avoid products with a lot of packaging - Moving your thermostat down just two (-2) degrees in winter and up 2 degrees in summer would save about 2000 pounds of carbon dioxide a year.
  7. Plant a tree - A single tree will absorb 1 tone of carbon dioxide over its life time and don’t cut a tree down unless it’s absolutely necessary!
  8. Turn off electronic devices - Simply turning off your television, DVD player, Stereo and computer when you’re not using them will save thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide a year.

451_ Getting Thanked for Doing the Right Thing...Awards Too
Dan King, Ambassador of Cool, Boulder Outlook Hotel enclosure-voice Five years ago Dan King and partners bought the Outlook Hotel in Boulder. It had been a Holiday Inn. Dan went onto point out, "We made it an independent hotel and from the beginning we wanted to make it feel like Boulder, act like Boulder, look like Boulder. We really wanted to develop that attitude, and it was a process. We didn’t start out being very ‘green’ – I mean we had some green initiatives, but it’s really grown with our business plan." Today the Boulder Outlook Hotel is Boulder's first Zero Waste hotel" and Dan wants to see more! "This is how we’re reflecting our community, and it is part of what we are about." Larry asked Dan to recommend the beginning steps an organization should take if going 'green'. "Recognize that it is a journey. It’s important for a business to figure out what they can take on first. What can they do and do well and accomplish it. Commit to the journey. I think each business has to look at what is within their reach first. I mean we’re a small business, we don’t have a lot of money to throw around. So I have to look at things that don’t require a lot of capital dollars." Dan went on, "The challenges are, it’s not going to happen until you get corporate buy-in, you’ve got to get everyone to buy-in and make the commitment. You do need commitment from the top. Then you need a champion within the organization who is not from top management. I was lucky enough to have a woman chef, Diane, who is our 'green goddess' at the hotel. And she became our champion. She got staff buy-in. But change is hard." Dan was a speaker at the CORE Sustainable Opportunities Summit. LISTEN 3/3/08

450_ Going Green - Definitely a Hot Topic Here's Why & How
Jeff Scott, Founder & President, SolSourceenclosure-voice It was the seed of an idea that he had when living in Japan. Jeff Scott, Sol Source, Founder & President said," I was thinking about the concept of people, planet and profit and working to see if there was some way to mainstream the green. I thought Colorado was the perfect place to do that; great solar resource, wind resource and we have the NREL, we have a great “building systems program” at CU Boulder, CU Denver has a great sustainability program, I just thought Colorado was the right place to come back to." Larry brought up how being 'green' seems to be the 'in thing'. Dan replied, "It’s definitely a hot topic. There is a definite trend toward the green; we see it on all the major media, local media of all kinds. It’s a very exciting space, but what we’re finding is there are not a lot of people that are technically qualified to be in this space. Getting the technical expertise into the workforce, there is probably a huge opportunity for someone to really tap into." First steps: Really get buy in from all of the people internally – get your workforce behind you, everybody that’s involved in your company, to understand what your position is. We’re actually working with several companies that have developed internal green teams, green task forces within the company, determining how they can reduce their impact. Energy audits are a great way to reduce our consumption. And because of the solar rebates in Colorado, as well as the federal tax credits that are available, there are great incentives for commercial companies to put solar hot water, solar electric or solar hot air into the building.

Doug Hietkamp, Teknion449_ In the Beginning There Was Resistance, But Slowly Caven Hill, District Manager, TeknionOne Plant at a Time...
enclosure-voice At the SOS conference Doug Hietkamp, Director Sustainable Programs, Teknion Corporation – Toronto, Ontario, Canada was addressing the greening of the manufacturing process. The main thing he brought to the discussion was the implementation of ISO 42001 environmental manufacturing system and changing the culture of the company. Teknion is a manufacturer of office furniture products, architectural products and Caven Hill is the District Manager, of Teknion in Denver. They discussed with Larry the challenges, the changes and the future of going 'green'. They pointed out that the biggest challenge was just changing people, changing their minds, getting them to think a little bit differently. Make sure there not afraid of a new approach, that goals coincide with the change in the culture. It’s getting people to start with something, doesn’t matter how small it is, just as long as they start with it and continue to move toward bigger and bigger things. "One of the things we did at the start was to show quick results, that people can see. So instead of starting with wasted kilowatts, you know, nobody can touch or feel a kilowatt. We have our waste programs, people can see waste, they understand reducing it, diverting it, whatever it might be and they can actually be a part of that. That was a good first step where people could grab a hold of it. Caven and Doug talked about the future and how carbon credits will be important and how we interact with those carbon offsets or taxes. There's more... LISTEN 3/3/08

Bud McGrath, COREGraham Russell enclosure-voice Addressing Climate Change for Sustainable and Profitable Business is no simple matter. Differing definitions and understandings along with misunderstood concepts make it challenging for some. Bud McGrath, Executive Director of CORE and Graham Russell, Director of the CORE Foundation discuss what is going on in the Clean Tech and Sustainability space and clear up many of the misunderstandings.

Companies are recognizing significant opportunities by creating new sought-after products, realigning the way they operate, and reducing their energy costs. Companies are finding that managing the risk of climate change and lowering their impact on the environment allows them to gain investor confidence, reduce their exposure to non-compliance, and increase their profits. The most significant conference (SOS) with world-renowned leaders will be in Denver February 27 - 29...w3w3.com will be there. LISTEN 2/11/08

Paul Jerde, The Deming Center, 
                   Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado at Boulder 434_ Will Sustainability and Cleantech Work Together in the Real World?
It’s all about the sea of change for the acceptance of the principals, practices and opportunities that intersect under the overarching umbrella of sustainability according to Paul Jerde, Executive Director of the Deming Center of Entrepreneurship, Leeds School of Business. What’s changed in the past couple of years with regard to Sustainability – trends, business acceptance and understanding of it? Will and how does Sustainability and Cleantech come together and if they do, will it last? How does Sustainability and Entrepreneurship intersect? These are questions that will be addressed head-on at the third annual Sustainability Opportunities Summit. Listen to Paul and you will gain further understanding of and some context pertaining to the ideas of sustainability, sustainable venturing, and business opportunity. He goes on to suggest," Perhaps some understanding of the myriad drivers...and hopefully some understanding of why this vague term has been so firmly adopted within business lexicon."

enclosure-voice384_ Climate Change - Legal Implications of the Risks and Challenges
Colin Harris, HRO, Climate Change LawInstitutional investors and environmental groups are pressuring corporate America to address the potential risks associated with greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and related climate change, which is defined here as variations in the Earth’s climate that may be attributed to human activity. Many companies are actively managing their carbon footprint through disclosure, trading and reductions. Colin Harris attorney Holme Roberts & Owen explains that most, however, are a step behind, or more. The reality is that the U.S. economy will almost certainly continue to be driven by carbon-intensive fuels and industries for the foreseeable future, even with our continued emphasis on “green” initiatives and despite the enactment of GHG regulations, which now seems inevitable. Nevertheless, the pressure on corporations to act responsibly and promptly on climate change is increasing, with a particular emphasis on the disclosure of the risks posed by climate change. It is a difficult balancing act faced by corporations regarding the challenges of climate change, particularly regarding increased pressure to be more transparent about risk.

Nigel Nugent, CH2MSolar Mapping: San Francisco Takes the Lead, for Now
enclosure-voice 345_ For the first time ever a resident of a city or a business owner, can get an estimate of the benefits of installing solar, in minutes. They are given info, case studies to read, and info about city rebates. Solar mapping can help reduce Co2 gas emissions, which is the largest in the family of greenhouse gasses. Nigel Nugent leads the charge for CHM2 HILL in its Enterprise Spatial Solutions group and points out how timely their proprietary SAFE Method (Solar Automated Feature Extraction) is and what it will mean to cities and states pushing for 'Clean Tech" for their communities. Nigel also feels we are seeing kind of city wide or state wide goals that are being put in place, but very quickly we’re going to see a kind of “Green Sarbanes Oxley” setting out specific requirements around use of green energy.

Bill Reichert, Garage Technology Venturesenclosure-voice326_ ‘Clean Tech Community’ on the Good Side and the Bad
It’s interesting to see what’s going on in the ‘clean tech community’ on the good side and the bad. There has been a bit of a bubble in the area. A lot of us in the community and the popular press have gotten a little over excited about the pace of technological innovation. The venture community in the US hasn’t jumped heavily into ‘wind power’ and that ironically has one of the best economics in terms of its efficiency and cost per watts produced. There has been huge public market investment and private equity investment in that area. Bill Reichert, Managing Partner at Garage Technology Ventures shares his insights.
