Leading the way in greening America

The agriculture industry feeds not only our nation, but much of the rest of the world, at reasonable prices. Naturally, that requires a lot of natural resources, and the industry sometimes gets criticized by environmentalists. But an increasing number of farmers and related businesses are seeking ways to reduce their energy use and carbon footprint.

I’m proud of Murray Wise Associates client Greg Braun and the other folks at California-based Border Valley Trading, which is taking the lead in helping businesses do just that. Through their network of companies -- including GreenFix America and Aggen -- they’re providing solutions in such vital areas as solar energy, resource recovery and conversion of diesel machinery and fleets to natural gas.
