  • Don’t see this on private sector buildings … buildings could be constructed to use 43 percent less energy through currently available energy-saving building design, practices and technologies, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
  • Who is looking at your utility bills? Who tracks and manages them? The FM? The bookkeeper? – kWH , Raychet , power factor , watt , demand charge what does it all mean?
  • Develop an operating plan Norm VSA – They have the rights to use this document – trying secure funding to the current template in the future ( two plans) Trained 80 facilities managers on it. starts the basis for a plan add on as you can.
  • 2 % initial investment in green construction could yield10 times the initial savings of that investments over the life of the building HMFH study average savings of green schools over 100,000 and energy savings 30% Direct quantifiable – water , maintenance and energy Average benefits 6.43 times greater than costs
  • The primary activities of the ICA are threefold: • To present outstanding contemporary art in all media, including visual art    exhibitions, music, film, video and performance, that is deserving of public    attention and has not been presented in depth to Boston audiences • To provide innovative experiential learning opportunities for people of all ages    through direct encounters with artists and art making • To design interpretative programs that provide context, develop appreciation,    and add meaning to contemporary art and culture
  • global demand basis
  • we can no longer think of environment and economic and social development as isolated fields In a sustainable society, nature is not subject to systematically increasing concentrations of substances being extracted from the earth’s crust or degradation by physical means, while people are not subjected to conditions that systematically undermine their capacity to meet their needs.
