Green is good: good business, good for the planet, and good for each of us. The logistics of sustainability take real effort, however. And it is not always easy, but it is an important effort, with a payoff at the end. In the rush of day-to-day business, Duratherm's effort at sustainability has been one of the most fulfilling and satisfying aspects of their business. It helps their employees, leadership team and clients. It enhances every project and enriches the communities they serve. Sustainability means better business, it brings the highest technologies into Duratherm's production and management systems. It increases awareness of the impact our company has, and, importantly, it has brought increased efficiencies to everything they do.
