Whole Foods Goes for Whole Wind

| Friday January 13th, 2006 | 0 Comments

wholefoods22.jpgAs widely reported (USA Today, Grist) Whole Foods Market will become the nation’s largest consumer of wind energy by purchasing credits equivalent to 100% of its estimated 2006 energy usage. That’s incredible news. A company with pockets as deep as Whole Foods’ may find this easier to do than other companies, and will enjoy an enormous PR benefit, but the net effect will most certainly benefit everyone else: Further encouragement for the development of the wind energy industry and cleaner air for everyone, not to mention cheaper wind power down the line – that’s a great investement any way you slice it.
Whole Foods is the first Fortune 500 company to make an investment like this and will undoubtedly soon have followers.
