Building Managers Can Save Money By Going Green

May 20, 2011 by pwrweb Conventional buildings may soon be rendered obsolete, and choosing to be “green” may no longer be optional. Facility managers are using the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) rating system much more frequently as a prototype for obtaining sustainable goals. There are many details involved in the LEED-EBOM certification process? To ensure they get the best results from their LEED-EBOM initiatives, facility managers need to know the most efficient ways to obtain their goals.

Whenever a decision is made to “green” an existing building, a project team needs to be put into place. Representatives of the facilities management department, as well as the engineering, maintenance, cleaning, purchasing, leasing and legal departments should be included in the project team. Facility managers may have several reasons for choosing to go “green”: lowering energy consumption; reducing operating costs; developing and marketing “green” real estate; minimizing the building’s carbon footprint; and the conservation of non-renewable resources.
