Going green for St. Patty's Day
In honor of St. Patrick's Day we are talking about "GREEN"...
For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. In the winter, heat leaves through the window when you need it, yet becomes trapped inside in the summer when you don't. Heat loss and gain drive our energy usage up. It can be felt in our monthly utility bills and calculated in our collective carbon emissions.
Today, Hunter Douglas is committed to lowering our energy usage and implementing other changes that will ultimately reduce our carbon footprint by 20%. Our overriding goal, though, is to help our customers everywhere save energy the natural way by effectively channeling and exploiting the natural power of the sun.
That's Hunter Green. It reminds us of our unique roots, of who we are today and of where we need to go. And while there are many shades of green in today's world, there is only one Hunter Green.
More specifically, the Hunter Green initiative is a company-wide program designed to promote the superior energy-saving benefits of Hunter Douglas products, create corporate awareness and action around conserving energy across our organization, and support social programs that have a positive impact across the globe through our philanthropic efforts.
There is a great brochure that discusses better understanding putting energy efficient products in your home. Here is the link. http://www.hunterdouglas.com/pdf/GreenLight_PlanetHome.pdf
