We hear so much about ‘green buildings’.  What does that mean, and why is it important?  How can ‘going green’ positively impact your facility and your budget? Learn how to define and implement sustainable projects and how to finance them through community initiatives.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the concept of sustainability, and explain why sustainable practices are advantageous to your facility.
  • Determine sustainability projects that will benefit your facility.
  • Give examples of resources for funding sustainability projects through community initiatives.
  • Identify potential challenges in implementing sustainability projects.
