Many U.S. companies have found that “going green” is not only good for the environment, but also for the bottom line. DuPont was able to cut its energy use by 7percent in four years.
In the process, it slashed greenhouse gas emissions by 72 percent, and increased its output by 30 percent.
This made stockholders very happy. Linda Fisher, DuPont’s vice president of environment, health and safety, says: “What started as an effort to address our carbon footprint has turned out to be financially a very good thing.”
