Amadeus Consulting partnered with Boulder, Colorado-based nonprofit recycling facility Eco-Cycle to launch the sustainability blog, focused on encouraging companies to “green” their office environments.
“At our corporate headquarters, we’ve taken steps to divert 90 percent of our office waste from landfills, implemented energy-conserving practices and other sustainability measures,” said Amadeus Consulting chief information officer John Basso. “Sustainability is part of our corporate culture. Because we’re so passionate about it, we want to show other companies how easy it is to put green practices into place at their own offices.”
