California leads green tech funding, reduces greenhouse emissions
California continues to experience remarkable success in extending its national lead in clean technology.  The state’s success has helped fuel its economic rebound and drive its efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions, even as the state’s population continues to grow.

Walmart creeps forward on its sustainability goals
Like most corporations, Walmart is making slow progress on meeting their sustainability goals by 2015, but the company still has a long way to go.  Since 2010, the company has eliminated more than 120,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions and has identified projects, which are expected to cut emissions by a combined total of 16 million metric tons.

Why it's time for industrials to step up their energy management
A report issued this month by Pike Research notes that industrial and manufacturing companies have increased their energy management efforts, they need to do more to stay cost competitive.  Industrial and manufacturing companies consume nearly one-third of all energy in the U.S. each year, improvements in energy efficiency can have a huge impact on their bottom lines.
