I don’t do well with the whole politically correct thing. In the one-day training classes we even talk about <gasp> multi-point grounding. And we talk about the reasons to use PROFIenergy, including AGW (Anthropomorphic Global Warning*). I guess I’m a bit of a skeptic, but it doesn’t matter – it’s still a reason to use PROFIenergy… a reason for your customers!
Here a couple quotes to support that notion:
Carbon Disclosure Project notes that most global companies are preparing to de-select suppliers who fail to manage carbon.
Wal-Mart Plans to Cut 20 Million Metric Tons of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Supply Chain
But even if you feel global warming is a farce, your customers may not.

I can imagine filling out a capital expenditure request with an ROI of “save the planet.” I can’t see that being approved; that’s a little hard to quantify. Fortunately with PROFIenergy an ROI can be quantified. We recently launched a project to help do just that. I like the conclusion reached in Wal-Mart chairman: Go green for money, not image. Money is a green that I understand.
A few PROFIenergy products are now available with more coming. To find out more about PROFIenergy:
And for how even fieldbus use can save the planet read “Yellow is the New Green.”
*AGW is a long-winded way to say man-caused global warming. Here in Scottsdale we have plenty of warming already – we hit 113F (45C) this week.
