This year’s SAAZ 2020 Global Leaders Conference welcomed more than 100 participants ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to landmark local businesses. Big Shine selected 15 of its top energy savers and awarded them for their contribution to the Approaching Zero campaign—an effort to reach carbon neutrality by reducing energy usage in facilities through LED lighting conversion. This year’s top awardees explained their targets in sustainability and the important role large corporations play in helping reduce our carbon footprint.
Starbucks Coffee Soluble Plant in Augusta, Georgia, came out as Big Shine’s top energy saver. The company’s representative and SAAZ award recipient encouraged all guests to read Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson’s letter on the company’s new sustainability commitment over the next ten years.
Lithia Motors was also among the awardees, being named a 2020 Energy Champion.
“As a company, Lithia Motors is looking forward to continue reducing our carbon footprint,” said Lithia Motors representative. “We are currently working on calculating our total company carbon footprint. This means we will be able to see energy consumption and GHG emissions for each of our locations. This will allow us to identify locations with higher impacts and take steps to lessen those impacts.”
Industry leaders in attendance, including Cox Enterprises, U.S. Green Building Council, TRC and ICF, acknowledged and supported the sustainability efforts of the awardees. The partnering organizations spoke at the conference giving participants insight into the steps that Fortune 500 companies and cities across the country are taking to lower their energy usage, decrease their greenhouse gas emissions, and raise awareness of the current state of our planet.
