    Will reducing greenhouse gas emissions be a roadblock to growth? A growing number of the best companies are looking beyond the political debate on global warming to see a strategic opportunity to increase profits and productivity. These "cool" companies have worked to cut heat-trapping emissions by as much as 50 percent in their buildings or factories.In Cool Companies, energy expert Joseph J. Romm describes the experiences of such successful companies as DuPont, 3M, Compaq, Xerox, Toyota, Verifone, and Perkin-Elmer. In all he shows how more than 50 companies have achieved bottom-line improvements by improving processes, increasing energy efficiency, and adopting new technologies. Using proven corporate strategies, Romm shows managers how they can build or retrofit their operations to reduce emissions and achieve quick returns on the investment. He explains: -- How changes in office and building design can significantly increase productivity, greatly compounding gains achieved from increased energy efficiency -- Why systematic efforts to reduce industrial emissions so often lead to productivity gains -- Options for "cool" power -- from cogeneration to solar, wind, and geothermal energy -- Energy efficiency in manufacturing, including motors and motor systems, steam, and process energy
