What Companies Are Making an Environmental Difference? Green Builder Media Announces Its Annual Eco-Leaders Issue

As global emissions become an existential threat, can manufacturing shift quickly enough to reverse runaway climate change? These companies say “yes.”

Lake City, Colo., Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  It’s hot, frighteningly hot this year. 

Global carbon emissions (CO2e) just hit their highest point in 800,000 years, according to NOAA and the American Meteorological Society. CO2e is considered the primary reason for earth’s rising temperatures. Yet, there’s still a preference for emissions-generating fossil fuels over greener energy sources. 

As we stand at this perilous precipice, some product makers have taken the situation seriously by implementing carbon reduction policies and protocols. Green Builder’s Eco-Leaders program honors these companies and showcases their best efforts as they grapple with an uncertain future.
