In a world with increasing energy needs and decreasing budgets, there is an urgent need to meet current operational demands while not compromising the future as a result of our energy use. A triple bottom line that takes into consideration people, planet, and profit is helping to steer the future for many companies. The same concept is employed by non-profit, state, and local governments. Reducing your organization’s carbon footprint will help your organization’s triple bottom line by reducing or shifting your energy load, both in buildings and transportation, to renewables or less carbon intensive solutions. In the process, you will have create a happier and more engaged workforce that may also generate savings for short-term or long-term budgets.
The Center’s Sustainability Services help plan, evaluate, implement, and report on a host of energy-related priorities for public and private entities. Our expertise focuses on: reducing energy costs, evaluating potential for increased efficiency and renewable energy, strategic planning (including life cycle costing and assessments) and policy and permit reviews/development, implementation logistics, and project execution. We also report on sustainability initiatives you may have already implemented and can help convene a group of stakeholders to begin planning and drafting a report on the results.
