Great post. And you're certainly right that there are few excuses for doing nothing. But I do think you've left out a major area where companies can find and measure meaningful results for their sustainability efforts: their supply chains.

Asking the right questions about a vendor's energy use and tracking the right metrics is a great place to start.

The old saw 'if you can't measure it, you can't manage it' is as relevant to energy efficiency practices and opportunities as it is to balance sheet analysis and cash flow optimization for a business.

One more tool to consider when pursuing local energy efficiency resources and solutions for an organization; your preferred online search engine.

Great article but you left out an important resource for manufacturers: demand response. These programs, quickly being introduced in many states, are designed to pay large energy consumers to curtail electricity or turn on backup generators rather than implement rolling blackouts. A company enrolled in one of these programs will see a direct infusion of money into their bottom line often saving them 2-5% on their annual electricity bills at no cost and no financial risk.
