Greenbaud Bringing Positive Changes and Green Action to Blackbaud

The Sustainability Institute, Rehava – Real Estate Store, Mixson, Dwell Smart, Pleasant Details Waterless Eco Car Wash Division and many other local green-minded companies participated in the Blackbaud’s first Green Fair on April 23, 2009. A group of 20 eco-minded Blackbaud employees partnered up with Team Blackbaud to bring positive changes to the company which include cell phone and battery recycling, videoconferencing, and today’s green fair.

 

Since forming about 18 months ago, Greenbaud has already saved the company thousands of dollars.

Last summer, to cut back on carbon emissions, Greenbaud persuaded management to increase the thermostat by two degrees to 76 F. This saved the company between $5,000 and $6,000 a month on energy costs.

“A lot of the time, being green is synonymous with saving money,” Cook said.

The group has encouraged videoconferencing instead of flying on business trips, and it is coordinating a carpool among the more than 1,000 employees at the Daniel Island office.
