`We are very proud of the work these Partners have done; from conserving water to saving energy, we are seeing major improvements in the way Georgia business leaders do business,` said Suzanne Burnes, manager of the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia. `To date, the combined environmental effort of our top-level Partners who reported savings has resulted in cumulative reductions in water use by 909 million gallons, conservation of 75 million kWh of electricity, and solid waste reductions of 15 thousand tons. Imagine the amount of money and natural resources that could be saved if more businesses followed their lead.`
