Green Mountain Coffee Helps Vermont Cut Energy Use
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is giving $30,000 to the Vermont Energy and Climate Action Network (VECAN) to help residents of participating towns reduce energy use, Times Argus reports.
The coffee company says this is one of its largest local grants to help improve energy efficiency in Vermont.
The funds will be spread among several groups within the VECAN network and Vermont Natural Resources Council.
VECAN is made up of groups formed at the municipal level focused on energy use, savings and efficiency.
In February, Green Mountain Coffee reported another impressive quarter. For two years running it has been on top of CRO magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens list. One article last summer pointed to the company’s use of renewable energy.
