Standing Up for U.S. Manufacturing: Michigan Business Owner to Address U.S. Commerce Dept. Sustainability Summit

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ --

Power user survey shows "a failure to communicate"

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When it comes to shedding light on the U.S. government's plans to make manufacturers and other commercial electrical users more energy efficient and environmentally-friendly, many businesses are being left in the dark, according to a recent survey of large electrical power consumers conducted by Myron Zucker, Inc. (MZI).

The survey was conducted among 350 of the power product firm's customers. The survey revealed that 75 percent of the 175 respondents have not heard or read anything about the U.S. Commerce Department's Sustainable Manufacturing Initiative (SMI) program, which was launched in 2007, according to Donna Zobel, Myron Zucker, Inc. president and CEO. "Now, two years later, there is clearly a failure of the government to communicate adequately the goals sought and potential benefits available to U.S. manufacturing firms and other institutions who adopt green practices," Zobel said.

While nearly 50 percent of survey respondents said that they have plans to implement environmentally-sustainable practices, many were critical of the lack of a level playing field against non-U.S. competitors, which enjoy a cost advantage because of lack of government requirements to employ sustainable practices.

Zobel will be among a select group of business leaders speaking at the upcoming Commerce Department "Sustainability and U.S. Competitiveness Summit" Thursday, Oct. 8 in Washington D.C. The summit will address green supply chain challenges, regulatory compliance, and the relationship between U.S. competitiveness and environmental responsibility. Zobel will address what U.S. companies large and small have been doing to be both sustainable and competitive, and the challenges they continue to face.
