Did you know building operations account for:
- 71% of electricity consumption
- 65% of waste output
- 39% of CO2 emissions
- 12% of water use
Efficiency improvements in all operations of any building (energy use, waste management, purchasing, cleaning and site and exterior management) can contribute to your organization's overall sustainability program and provide cost savings, improved productivity, reduced environmental impacts, and numerous benefits of corporate social responsiblity.
Last April, around Earth Day we as a company committed to actions we were going to take personally and collectively to change our usage habits. Soon we'll be revealing what that impact looks like in dollar savings and carbon reduction over the past 6 months from actions like - using a reusable water bottle instead of plastic cup, biking to work, turning off the lights when you leave a room and changing out light bulbs.
