It’s time to reduce our facility energy consumption—not just for our own pockets, but also for the good of the environment.
Just take a look at some recent stats on energy consumption in the U.S:
- Energy accounts for 60% of a property’s carbon footprint.
- The average commercial building wastes 30% of the energy it consumes.
- U.S. health care facilities alone spend $8.8 billion a year on energy.
- The hotel industry’s carbon impact accounts for 2% of the earth’s total and is expected to rise to 3% due to the growing tourist demand.
