(From Business Wire) -- Going "green" in the workplace can lead to more green in the bank according to a new survey released today from Buck Consultants, an independent subsidiary of ACS, A Xerox Company. The survey showed that the number of U.S. employers with formal "green workplace" programs rose significantly last year with many organizations reporting cost savings from reduced use of paper and electricity.
