Nearly nine out of ten Fortune 1000 senior executives feel a moral responsibility to make their companies more energy efficient, and 13 percent say environmental concerns are their main motivator to save energy.

A poll by Harris Interactive, on behalf of Schneider Electric, found that 88 percent of executives feel a moral responsibility to cut energy use, beyond simply the ethical imperative to follow regulatory requirements.

But the executives said cost savings are their biggest energy-saving motivator. Savings were the prime motivator chosen by 61 percent of executives, compared to 13 percent choosing environmental concerns, ten percent citing CEO mandates, and only two percent choosing government regulations.

As we enter 2011, we join much of the Western world in reflecting on the past year and making resolutions for the New Year. First, we celebrate our clients’ increased awareness of issues pertaining to environmental sustainability. Their raised attentiveness to environmental concerns leaves us optimistic for their actions in 2011. Yet we know that awareness and interest don’t necessarily translate readily into behavior. Our resolution for 2011 is to help our clients turn awareness and interest into impactful action to address sustainability.

This New Year brings with it a new administration for Georgia. We welcome Governor Nathan Deal and all the freshman legislators to the State Capitol and look forward to their leadership in meeting the many formidable challenges we face, including the state budget crisis that continues to loom as the largest in many decades. We also welcome Commissioner Mark Williams to the helm of the Department of Natural Resources, along with several new members of the Board of Natural Resources, and look forward to their leadership in championing our work in resource conservation and environmental stewardship for all Georgia.
