Have you begun to incorporate green building practices into your building?
Are your customers asking about your green and sustainable practices?
Are you pursuing LEED for Existing Building (LEED-EB) certification?
Do you have a green building certification -LEED-NC (new construction), LEED-EB (existing
building), or LEED-CI(commercial interiors) - and want a way to maintain the best practices
that have been initiated?
Whether you are just starting or have already implemented green building practices, you need tools
to manage these efforts. Many organizations sink thousands of dollars into upgrades or
certification, but fail to reap the long-term rewards of energy and cost savings, simply because
there is no framework to embed these practices into their organization. Building owners and
operators need tools for operating their green building and sustaining their green building
In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to keep green buildings green by:
• Identifying key players and actions
• Creating checklists and procedures
• Finding ways to sustain green building practices
Who should attend this workshop? This workshop is designed for Facility Managers, Plant
Engineers, EMS and/or Sustainability Coordinators – anyone with responsibility for building
operations, management or green practices.
