PGE - Energy Efficiency's Role in Your Sustainability Agenda

Tuesday, May 1, 2012 - 8:30am to 4:30pm
Description In the context of buildings, "sustainability" implies energy- and water-efficiency, environmentally preferred products, healthy interior environments and integrated waste management practices. Energy use directly impacts a building's inherent sustainability as well as its ENERGY STAR, LEED or Green Globes rating. This class will demonstrate why energy efficiency should be a primary focus of your sustainability agenda - a cost-effective path to not only higher building ratings, but also enhanced competitiveness, profitability and value.
