Celebrating World Environment Day

Published
18 June 2024

On June 5th we celebrated World Environment Day which serves as a crucial reminder of our collective responsibility to protect and preserve our planet.  

Throughout history, human activities have altered the Earth’s ecosystems, leading to unprecedented levels of environmental degradation. From deforestation to the rampant use of fossil fuels, our actions have far-reaching consequences for the planet and future generations.  

But there is a light in this tunnel. Amidst these challenges lies the opportunity for positive change and a chance for us to come together to solve what may be the most challenging issue facing our generation: Climate Change.  

This act of coming together is exactly what World Environment Day celebrates. We are encouraging individuals, communities, governments, and businesses to join forces and explore sustainable solutions to environmental issues. 

At Optimum Energy we take great pride in knowing we get to be part of that solution. We feel incredibly fortunate to come to work every day and make a positive impact on the global environment. This passion for sustainability is embedded in the very DNA of our organization and as such we asked our team members to share what World Environment Day means to them: 

“Optimum Energy has prevented a whopping 3.5+ BILLION pounds of CO2 from being released into our atmosphere! This is a huge win for our planet and a testament to our partners and their commitment to sustainability. Let’s keep up the great work and continue to make a positive impact for everyone on the planet. Here’s to a greener, cleaner future!”

– Larry Stapleton, CEO

“With atmospheric levels of CO2 at an all-time high, I’m honored to work for a company with a mission to reduce building emissions all over the world. When today’s consumers and regulatory systems are hyper-focused on corporate carbon footprints, Optimum Energy helps companies get closer to net zero. Optimizing HVAC infrastructure with intelligent software to reduce emissions is a super approachable concept for businesses to lean into. It’s a simple approach to a radical idea of clean air, AND it saves companies millions of dollars annually. ” 

– Kay John, Senior Project Manager for Optimum Energy 

As we celebrate World Environment Day 2024, let us renew our commitment to protecting our planet and building a sustainable future for all. By embracing sustainable solutions and working together, we can create a world where nature thrives, and future generations can thrive alongside it.
