PRLog - Jun. 23, 2014 - MIAMI -- Inktel Contact Center Solutions, a leading global provider of contact center services, has painted the roof of its Miami Lakes office white to further its efforts in becoming more environmentally friendly and minimizing its carbon footprint. As part of the project, the building’s roof was painted with a white solar-reflective paint that will reduce temperatures inside the building and minimize related costs.

After CEO Ricky Arriola attended a TEDxMiami talk where White Roof Project spokesperson Leisha John challenged the audience to be involved in painting schools’ roofs white on a national scale, he knew he wanted to be part of the action. Like millions of other rooftops across America, Inktel’s buildings were topped in black tar that absorbs a great amount of heat, especially in the summer months. When the sunlight falls on a white rooftop, however, much of the rays are reflected back into the atmosphere and not converted into heat, which allows the buildings to maintain cool.

Installing the white rooftop at Inktel was an easy and inexpensive task, with results that are already indicative of its value. After its implementation in March, the company experienced a 12% cost savings and 19% energy savings in April, followed by a 5% cost savings and 12% energy savings in May in comparison to the same months of 2013.

“We are always searching for new ways to go green and make a significant impact with respect to the environment,” said Ricky Arriola. “We are already seeing great results, and we are looking forward to seeing how South Florida businesses like us can reduce the carbon footprint!”
