Do you agree that sustainability is the heartbeat of every business? As for Steve Melink, supporting Green Building is the right thing for businesses. It’s proven, practical, and profitable. And, above and beyond the energy savings, it’s an enhancement to your brand, your reputation, and what your customers think of you.

Steve Melink is a national clean energy expert, founder, and CEO of Melink Corp, a global provider of energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions for commercial buildings. Steve is a believer that the core meaning of being a conservative is “preventing the wasteful overuse of our natural resources and protecting our environment from harm or destruction.”

In this episode, Steve shares his mission to change the world one building at a time by helping decision-makers implement energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions in their commercial facilities. He also shares the back story of how attending a LEED conference introduced him to countless architects, engineers, and other building professionals who were all intent about changing the unsustainable building industry; how the exposure resonated with him, and how he came to become part of this clean energy and green building movement.

Supernova 1: “I believe that everybody in the building industry is looking at new buildings. We have proven that there is the opportunity to have a net-zero energy building at a cost premium of only 9%. Even without the current lucrative incentives – it’s not only a wise financial investment, but it’s a smart investment in our brand,  people, and customers.”

Supernova 2: “For me, it’s about education and inspiration. If we allow ourselves to think purely in financial terms, that’s good. But an even better way is to view Green Buildings as the right thing for businesses, above and beyond the energy savings.”

Supernova 3: “Fusion capitalism”  has both positive and negative connotations. But in my way of thinking, it is the best way to move markets to adopt what we need to do in this global economy in which we live.”
