Biodiesel Maker Practicing What It Preaches

John Davis

A Colorado biodiesel producer is following its commitment to making the green fuel by moving its headquarters into a green building. Blue Sun Biodiesel has moved into one of just 26 Leadership and Energy and Environmentalism Design (LEED)-certified buildings in the world.

This article from Biodiesel Magazine says LEED means the building reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 35 percent to promote a “whole-building” approach to sustainability:

“Blue Sun Biodiesel is working to reduce their carbon output at all stages through careful management and process,” said Mike Miller, president of Blue Sun Biodiesel.

The move testifies to Blue Sun’s commitment to green business practices, said Jeff Probst, chief executive officer of Blue Sun. “With the decision to locate our headquarters in a sustainable building, we’ve shown our commitment,” he said.

“It is important to be committed to the core principles of your business in every way,” Miller said. “Blue Sun Biodiesel recognizes that everything we do, including the office in which we work, should say something about the quality of products we offer and our industry leading principles.”
