The mission of GreenPro Systems is to grow productivity and profitability with sustainable solutions. Our firm works with management, owners, and employees to achieve sustainable business solutions while increasing resource-efficiency, employee productivity, and company profitability.
Our work generally results in saving a company 30% to 50% on energy bills and provides a marked reduction in key operating costs. At GreenPro we know that sustainable business is not only good for our environment, it is good for a company’s productivity and profitability.
Our firm’s mission is imperative. It is stunning to realize that–
- The energy used by commercial and industrial buildings across the United States are responsible for almost 50% of the greenhouse gases emitted in America. 1
- Across the United States, 30% of the energy in the buildings where we work, worship and go to school is used inefficiently or unnecessarily. 2
- We could take the equivalent of 30 million vehicles off the road (equal to the number of automobiles registered in Illinois, New York, Ohio, and Texas COMBINED) each year, if we would simply improve the efficiency of our commercial and industrial buildings across the America by only 10%. 3 & 4
- We would save approximately $20 billion on our energy bills across America, if we simply increased the efficiency in our commercial and industrial buildings by only 10%. 5
- You can increase the asset value of your existing properties, improve your bottom line, and enhance workplace productivity by increasing energy efficiency and improving the environmental practices in your existing building. 6
