Brian Madden – Facilities Manager
“Frates Consulting was able to help my training studio go green and save green. They helped us reduce our energy and water consumption as well as how to eliminate most of our trash. Additionally, they made wonderful recommendations for transitioning away from toxic cleaning materials. All this wonderful work culminated in the Certification of my studio by the Sacramento Area Green Business Program. We are very happy with the wonderful job Frates Consulting has done and their ongoing support for all our future sustainability needs”.
Megan White - Owner
“Recently we had the opportunity to work with Frates Consulting. This was done to make better use of our many underlying resources. The entire process was explained very well and to our complete understanding. It’s not a job that many would undertake, in our opinion. For example, he willingly followed our hotel waste/debris stream and separated it. His thoroughness was able to provide us with the information we needed to optimize our decision- making for more sustainable handling of our disposables, and offered many saving opportunities.”
