Inspirational ideas on water and energy conservation

The US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Corporate Citizenship Center has published a 55 page report Achieving Energy and Water Security: Scalable Solutions from the Private Sector which describes how 25 major corporations and organizations with US connections have implemented programs to improve their water efficiency, energy efficiency, or both. The companies, which cover a wide range of sectors and operations, include:

  • Alcoa
  • AMD
  • American Water
  • Anheuser-Busch
  • Caesars Entertainment
  • CH2M HILL
  • ExxonMobil
  • FedEx
  • Ford
  • General Motors
  • Hilex Poly Co. LLC
  • HP
  • IBM
  • Kimberly-Clark
  • MillerCoors
  • Pepco Holdings, Inc.
  • Prudential
  • Sears Holdings Corporation
  • The Dow Chemical Company
  • United Airlines
  • Veolia Environment North America
  • Wells Fargo

and more.

The report describes what each company has done and the results that have been achieved. In many cases he results, both environmental and economic, are very significant. There is way too much information to summarize here but highlights will be provided in an issue of Gallon Environment Letter later this year.
