Ecolink Inc., a leader in industrial cleaners and solvents wins two awards
In front of a sold out crowd during 2010 Natural Leaders Award ceremony, Ecolink Inc. accepted two awards from Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue for energy conservation and environmental stewardship. Ecolink was the only Georgia organization to receive multiple awards from Conserve Georgia and Georgia Department of Natural Resources – Sustainability Division.
Following an EPA Region 4 sponsored Lean and Green event, Ecolink Inc. embarked on a 12-month journey to reduce their resource consumption. During the 2010 Natural Leaders Award, Ecolink Inc. was recognized for reducing their electricity by 35% surpassing Governor Perdue’s Energy Challenge of 15% reduction by 2020. Through energy conservation, more than 7 tons of coal was prevented from mining, transportation and burning. Between energy conservation and improving logistics and accounting systems, the company was able to reduce more than $100,000 from annual operating expenses.
