Sustainability: The Right Thing To Do?

Editor's Notes

  1. Traditional model of businessBusinesses are in business to make money, increase shareholder valueHow do the principles of sustainability fit within the traditional model?
  2. Emphasize that sustainable business means financially sustainableSustainability is NOT sacrificing quality of life in the pursuit of zero impact
  3. Traditional model of businessBusinesses are in business to make money, increase shareholder valueShort term approach both internally and externallyPeople: employees and social responsibilityPlanet: environment inside the building and effect of the building on the environment, carbon footprintProfit: internal profit and shareholder valueHow do the principles of sustainability fit within the traditional model?
  4. More balanced modelIn today’s terms: more sustainable model3 legged stoolProfit? Yes, of course, but this also means that environmental and social aspects of operations are considered in equal measureHow can paying attention to these other two factors, improve profitability?
  5. For business, what does sustainability mean?Strategic focus and trade offsAdopting business strategies that meet the needs of the business and stakeholders today – i.e. – growth and profitability – while protecting the human and environmental resources available in the future. Developing a plan.What are some of the more specific “aspects” of sustainability?
  6. Every buildingcreates environmental impact: offices, medical facilities, factories, power plants, schoolsHave you considered the effect on the environment of the buildings you work in?Look at these percentages of the impact of buildings…..….What are some of these?Energy useSolid waste generatedWater consumedlandscapingWhat else is affected by the buildings you work in?
  7. Depicts what happens in a building over a 50 year lifecycle.Notice, that design is only 1% of the total but by designing sustainability, we can have huge impact on operational efficiency, indoor air quality, energy use. These affect the bottom line and paying attention is the right thing to do…Also notice, that employees make up 88% of that building’s impact.Worker productivity is another sustainability indicatorAlso affects the bottom line.Sustainability initiatives are interdisciplinary - Sustainability is NOT sacrificing quality of life in the pursuit of zero impact
  8. Traditional model of businessBusinesses are in business to make money, increase shareholder valueHow do the principles of sustainability fit within the traditional model?
  9. vague slogans like “go green” and “sustainable” Must be based in practical processes with quantifiable resultsTo mean anything, a commitment to sustainability must be founded on quantitative, verifiable measures.If not, at best, it’s misleading and at , worst ‘green washing’.This is where sustainability metrics – sustainability scorecards – come in.
  10. Wide variety of sustainability metrics
  11. Purpose of these metrics includes….More details on metrics…LEED and carbon footprint
  12. …a tool to measure sustainability in a sample of buildings using a consistent metric for comparison.…a tool to promote the use of sustainable design, construction and operations in the building industry.…becoming a language that assists the building industry in effectively communicating sustainable design, construction and operation strategies.LEED is NOT a design guideLEED is NOT a specificationLEED is NOT a building code, NOR a standard
  13. …develop in already developed areas…reduces irrigation and landscape maintenance (i.e., fertilization, etc)…reduces stormwater runoff…reduces heat island effect…helps to provide a dark sky at night
  14. …develop in already developed areas…reduces irrigation and landscape maintenance (i.e., fertilization, etc)…reduces stormwater runoff…reduces heat island effect…helps to provide a dark sky at night My lifestyle requires 6.78 earths…
  15. …reduce potable water use within the building…reduce site water use by providing efficient irrigation systems, or native species which require no irrigation…consider collecting condensate, rainwater, greywater for use as non-potable water (i.e., cooling tower make-up water)
  16. Reduce material useEliminate material wasteAsk vendors to reduce packagingReuse materialsRenovate a buildingUse salvaged/refurbished furnishingsUse recycled materialsPost-consumer recycled contentPre-consumer recycled contentAlso:-regional materials-rapidly renewable materials-certified wood

  18. Carbon footprint = environmental impact quantifiedfor a defined entity – household, building, city, campus, etcUnit of measure – mtonnes of CO2 equivalentMton = 2200lbs.CO2eq
  19. How can you add apples and oranges together?GWP allows comparison of the impact of GHGs to each other and carbon dioxide. Global warming potential (GWP) is a measure of how much a gas contributes to global warming over a period of time – 100 years – compared to carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide most prevalent greenhouse gas (GHG).
  20. 5 campus community collegeWhat’s the biggest contributor to the footprint?So, to develop a strategy to reduce the footprint, what will they do?Biggest pieces of the pie result from electricity and natural gas use.Community college will strategize on how to reduce these.Reducing energy use reduces ghg which translates into reductions in carbon footprint.
