As members of the U.S. Green Building Council, our team at AMS Contractors recognizes that thoughtful and efficient design and construction not only have a positive impact on our environment, but also on the lifecycle cost of a structure—saving our clients money and preserving resources well into the future.
It is impossible to pick up a paper or tune in to the news without some mention of the environment and sustainable practices and design. No matter which side of climate change debate you are on, protecting the environment is in the public consciousness. In fact, sustainable practices and environmentally-friendly design are factors in many buying decisions. The restaurant and food service industry is no exception. Public opinion is shifting toward making environmentally responsible buying choices based on sustainability and green practices. More than half of customers will not buy from brands that fail to meet their social and environmental obligations.
