Last week, Hawai‘i Green Business and Green Government Awards were announced by the state’s Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism (DBEDT). The awards recognize organizations for their outstanding efforts in greening their business practices. One of the recipients was the Hawaii State Senate – cited for its Paperless Initiative which reduced paper use by 80%.
It’s worth nothing that the State of Hawaii has set a goal to achieve 70 percent clean energy by 2030, with 30% from efficiency measures, and 40% coming from locally generated renewable sources.
