Companies are learning that business processes and investments which are ecologically viable are also economically beneficial.


For traditionalists in non-mechanized operations, who depend on human-operated forklifts and similar equipment, there is a move underway from older-style DC motors to AC-powered trucks.

There are many other operational practices that not only reduce energy use and help make you "a wise and good corporate citizen of planet earth," but also simply make good business practice, Hudock adds.

"Good maintenance procedures, preventive maintenance and care in operating equipment also tie into good energy management and use of non-renewable resources," he points out.
