Today I want to talk about our bottom pillar of our company and that is about environmental impact. When it comes to our environment there are three approaches a company can take. They can either do something, not do something or do it partially. This is one of the easiest yet hardest things any of us could ever do as a society. Yet it is also one of the hardest as well. This is where many fall into that third area or if it’s convenient they will do it and if it takes one extra amount of energy they slip into the someone else will do it phase. Let’s take a look at the challenge of being friendly to the environment.
The first step is where do you begin? There is no fixed starting point and no ending point in this. I like the staged approach where you start with the easy and do it consistently which makes the rest slowly come to pass. Here is what we have already done which you will see is not as much as I wish.
That’s where we are at today. That’s not our long-term plans though. We want to look at solar (that’s the long-term ambition) for our roof to power the entire building. Snow and cloudy days will put a damper on that but it will be a great start. We will be upgrading our windows, furnace, and air conditioning to the highest level possible today. On our windows, we will have them tinted to keep heat in the winter and the heat out in the summer.
We know that we alone cannot change the world. We can do our part though to try and do our best. I feel if everyone does just one thing it will be a step in the right direction to making our planet for us, and our future inhabitants, have a better place to live. I feel that Mars and space exploration are a huge benefit to mankind but as we strive to do that we should continue to look at improving our home planet.
