Businesses are pursuing sustainability in facilities managementTrying to find ways to hit your corporate sustainability goals and reduce costs at the same time? A recent survey tells us that many of your peers are considering lower-cost renewable energy solutions, such as solar power, to help them to do just that. 
  
With energy costs on the rise, facility managers who want affordable business energy solutions are finding that they can do both. This Environmental Leader article shows how facility managers are fighting rising energy costs and making an immediate impact by investing in corporate sustainability initiatives such as LED lighting upgrades, EMS/monitoring controls and distributed energy resources (DERs).
