Green Resource Guide
Why Green? In the United States, 35 to 45 percent of the waste stream and 20 percent of the energy consumption is commercial in origin, resulting in over 50 billion dollars spent by businesses each year.
Committed to reducing its contribution to these harsh realities, NCCN and its network members pledged to implement three key green strategies: environmentally friendly cleaning products, efficient electrical and water systems, and innovative recycling programs.
