Speaking of the Environment

Has your company thought about Going GREEN? Going GREEN with your company could be a huge risk. However, Going GREEN could also be the move that brings in new customers, improves employee morale and contributes to a better quality of life for everybody.

In 2006, the leadership of an Atlanta courier company determined it was time to change company direction and Go Green! From a conversion to hybrid cars, e-mail billing, eco cleaners to tele-working, Green Express changed the way they did business to earth friendly methods. And the results are impressive.

Immediately the company reduced fuel costs by 50%, paper consumption by 94% and the hybrid cars were emitting 80% less toxins in Atlanta's air than the competition. A year later, over 200 new customers have come on board primarily because they want to do the right thing for the environment. Some of the companies doing business with Green Express have initiated recycling programs, paper reduction systems and carpooling.

Hear the story of how America's first hybrid car courier moved to a green friendly approach right before the crash of the real estate market. Find out what worked, what failed and why the Clean Air Campaign awarded Green Express a PACE Award and named them Innovative Company of the Year in 2007 in Georgia.
