Improve Sustainability Profile
The era of responsible environmental practices in corporate America has finally moved from the PR department to the Boardroom. Major companies and institutions in all sectors of the economy have embarked on a solid path to reduce their own carbon footprint and respond to the huge challenges associated with preserving our natural resources. Energy efficient lighting can play a significant role in the journey towards sustainability. Would you like to find out how?
Lighting is ubiquitous. Virtually every square foot of space within your facility portfolio requires lighting that has the potential to be upgraded to a less intensive energy using profile. The potential for reductions in kilowatt hours of usage and kilowatts of demand are notable at the enterprise level and can have a significant impact on your sustainability metrics. Additionally, the proper disposal of old lighting technologies after the upgrade not only takes potentially harmful materials out of landfills, but also it supports strict EPA standards that not everyone follows.
Since 1998, our customers have completed more than 1,700 energy efficient lighting projects involving approximately 180 million square feet of facility upgrades. These projects have delivered more than $340 million in cumulative energy savings to our customers while reducing energy consumption by a combined 3.5 billion kilowatt hours. That is the equivalent of removing more than ½ million gas powered cars from the world.
If you are embarking on a sustainability initiative, or seek to accelerate the green metrics associated with your current programs, don’t forget about lighting. You will be reducing operating expenses and making the world a better place for generations to come.
