GGI maintains a strong commitment to protecting the environment through energy conservation and efficiency. The ENERGY STAR program represents the power to protect the environment. It offers businesses and individuals the opportunity to participate in solutions that lower utility costs, increase comfort, prevent pollution and protect the environ- ment for future generations.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began the program
in 1992, and in a little over a decade, the results have been tremendous. In 2003, "Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR saved enough energy to power 20 million homes and avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 18 million
cars -- all while saving $8 billion." For more information on this
important program, go to www.energystar.gov.
