2012 has been declared the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All by the United Nations General Assembly. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon notes several global sustainability efforts started in 2011 that focused on green building, sustainable living and green supply chains which promise to deliver positive results in the coming year. Alternative energy projects range from the Solar Electric Light Fund which helps villages in Benin grow fruits and vegetables year round to the music group Linkin Park’s initiative to underwrite solar powered light bulbs to be given to families in Haiti, provided through the Music for Relief organization.

Capital Green, an energy and sustainability consulting firm, has been launched by a group of veterans from green industry. Located in Washington, D.C., the consultancy will provide green solutions that reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint for commercial building owners and to the federal government. Capital Green’s custom solutions include information about federal sustainability initiatives, data from product tests, and detailed lighting product specifications.
