7. What’s the next step for sustainable business?
The first in our series of green iMeetings, Lewis Perkins of Cradle2Cradle moderates an intriguing roundtable among leaders in sustainable business. The first in our green iMeeting series discusses “Corporate Sustainability 2.0,” an exploration of corporate sustainability and how it may evolve. John Mulcahy of Georgia-Pacific and Sarah Hicks of MNN share their viewpoints with Perkins about how environmental stewardship can bring value to both companies and consumers.
6. PGi Bikes to Work: Exclusive Interview with our Pedaling Participants
To celebrate Bike Month last year, PGi employees from all over the world pedaled to work during Bike to Work week to demonstrate their support of green alternatives and healthier life choices. In a recent interview, I asked several participants in PGi’s Austin, Clonakilty and Toronto offices to recap their experiences, to reflect on their motivations and successes, and share their future plans as well as offer advice to first-time cyclists. A fun interview with first-hand Austin road perspectives not to be missed!
5. Infographic: 12 ways you can green your office
Acclaimed illustrator Tony Shasteen (illustrator for USA Network’s “Burn Notice” graphic novel) shares his talents with PGi to remind us that every day (and not just Earth Week) is one to think about ways to go green, improve the environment, increase efficiency, and lower the energy costs of your office. A beautiful demonstration of all that we can do by making better choices.
4. PGi Green Data Center: Cost Efficiency brings Environmental Savings
Going green is a good thing, but when we tie these efforts to bottom line efficiencies and cost savings, the choice is clear. This interview with PGi’s Aaron Lafferty reveals how creating our own green data center involves the consideration of computer equipment, mechanical and electrical systems, and building construction as they contribute to the design and output of maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact.

PGi had the opportunity to interview Morgan Carey – yes, that’s right: Mariah’s brother – who shares his holistic, healing perspectives on sustainable practices, volunteering with local schools, and the fundamental power of nutritional healing with us on the blog. In fact, the interview was so in-depth that we created a two-part series – be sure to check out both part one and part two.
