Companies have to do extensive studies before selecting sustainability options that suit their needs.
Mayra Velazquez de Leon, president, Organics Unlimited, San Diego, says cost is something to be considered and researched.
Organics Unlimited is looking into some solar energy options, Velazquez de Leon said.
“We know it will be a big investment, but it’s something that will give you a return at some point. We’ll not only be saving on energy costs, we will become a more sustainable warehouse,” she said.
In addition, longevity is something to consider.
“Once you make the upgrade, it’s something that will be in place for a long time,” Velazquez de Leon said.
