Companies that manufacture or process food and beverages are increasingly important to the New England economy. While products and facility size vary, they all use and pay for energy, water, chemicals (cleaning products or others) and waste management. Reducing these costs can help to sustain and expand a business, while ensuring that your products are safe for consumption.
Green Your Bottom Line is an initiative to support food and beverage businesses in making improvements to their facilities and processes, which will benefit both their businesses and the environment:
- Increase energy efficiency
- Increase renewable energy use
- Increase efficiency of water use
- Use safer cleaning and sanitizing products
- Reduce waste
- Improve operations
- Reduce operating costs
We are holding a series of interactive workshops for food and beverage businesses to share experiences, challenges and successes to date and plan future actions. Workshops include case studies and lessons learned, technical topics, and opportunities to learn from peers. Our team of experts will connect participants with the appropriate resources - many of them free - and incentives or funding to help with energy and environmental improvements. We have held several workshops across Massachusetts since 2016, and participants have given very positive feedback, citing the networking opportunities and connection with resources as particularly helpful.
