Sustained Sustainabilty Effort At ConEd

ConEd released their 2009 Sustainability Report. The full report is only available on the web, with a "condensed" version available in print. By going digital, ConEd says they saved-

86,168 gallons of water

9,882 pounds of solid waste

180 million BTUs, the amount of energy used by two homes in a year

28, 432 pounds of greenhouse gases, the equivalent of taking three cars off the road for a year.

Of course, the real reductions come from upgrading their systems. The company reports that their greenhouse gas emissions plunged 36 percent, or by about 2.4 million tons, between 2005 and 2009.
