Energy & Environmental Sustainability

It’s time to dispel the myth that investing in sustainability hurts the bottom line.

TDO’s expertise in manufacturing and lean methodologies helps you generate savings from energy and environmental initiatives.

TDO staff and partners provide comprehensive assessments to identify opportunities and quantify the investment and potential savings up front. In addition, we connect clients with grants and other resources from government agencies, universities, utilities and others to assist with projects.
