ASPEN ” Businesses in Aspen can now “green” their operations at no cost with the “Greening Advisor” a web-based tool developed by Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental organization.

The process for a business to become “green” entails a review of its operations and supply chains to reduce envi­ronmental impacts. The NRDC Greening Advisor takes a localized approach to greening, enabling users in Aspen to find nearby vendors for everything from organic produce to environmentally friendly building products. It also helps businesses navigate their way through every conceivable aspect of the greening process.

“NRDC wanted to provide this valuable tool at no charge to ensure the authenticity of corporate greening efforts and make certain that companies have the benefit of the most current and credible resource,” said Dr. Allen Hershkowitz, NRDC senior scientist.”All businesses have an environmen­tal impact, so whether you have three employees or 3,000, taking steps toward improving the environmental perform­ance of your business helps to ensure a clean and healthy environment for future generations, as well as a healthy and more efficient economy.”
