Green Office and Green Lab Programs

When spaces are created and maintained sustainably, individuals, communities, and the planet all benefit. Sustainable spaces mean regulating temperature and light efficiently if applicable, protecting individual health and wellbeing, reducing plug loads, and minimizing paper use. With lower energy bills comes reductions in harmful greenhouse gas emissions, so integrating sustainability in your spaces protects the planet, too.
