BOMA San Francisco Members:
Please consider joining Sustainable Industries for their next webinar on December 16, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. focused on the holistic management of green buildings, sponsored by UL Environment.
Reducing energy and water use in commercial buildings are where many green building managers begin and end their sustainability efforts. But to truly reduce buildings' environmental impact, they must be looked at as whole systems. However, small ticket items, such as using non-toxic cleaners, often fall by the wayside after a building receives certification. New software programs and a focus on the issue by the U.S. Green Building Council promise to make it easier, more economical and a better investment to manage green buildings holistically. Susan Steward, Executive Director BOMA Portland will discuss the benefits of such an approach and Christian Gunter, vice president for responsible property investing at Bentall Kennedy will talk about specific methods that work, pitfalls to be avoided and the savings the company has realized managing its portfolio this way.
