There is no limit to what a company can do to take a little pressure off the environment. Whether an individual pursues a green MBA or a real estate degree, there are sustainable business strategies he or she can adopt and implement in their chosen profession.
For example, Grubb and Ellis Company, an organization specializing in commercial real estate and investments, has announced that it will take part in the World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour 2011. This 60-minute period is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 26, from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
Grubb and Ellis, its clients and more than 50 million supporters will all observe the hour to build awareness for climate change. The company will turn off all of its non-essential lights and electrical equipment at each of its offices.
In addition, the company is encouraging tenants of a 302-million-square-foot property it manages to participate.
"We are proud that with the flip of a switch, Grubb and Ellis will unite in spirit with its clients and millions of people around the world to take action and raise awareness of climate change – a cause that affects everyone on Earth," said Thomas P. D'Arcy, the company's president and chief executive officer.
