Energy costs are on the rise and will continue to rise. Better understanding of the effect our everyday actions have on our environment are driving more and more people to want to make changes, to “go green”. They want to give back to the environment, but have no idea where or how to start. Making homes and businesses more energy efficient saves money and resources, and also represents opportunities to offer green training for individuals to perform evaluations and make the necessary recommendations to bring others into the world of sustainability. This is green training, and the demand for green expertise exceeds the supply.
Sustainability and green design are factors that more businesses and individuals are coming to value when they make choices, so learning to minimize our environmental impact can not only help us to protect the environment, but also to be more successful. Consumers are increasingly aware of environmental issues, with the number who said they would be more willing to buy from a sustainable company jumping from 56% in 2008 to 68% in 2010, and still rising. Keeping this motivation in mind will help you to achieve success as you embark in green training. Earn your green certification today!
