Energy (and water) efficiency

Green building

sustainable site selection

products
 Improve indoor air quality thru healthy materials
 Continued green operations and maintenance
What’s next for Green?
Nationally

efficiency measures
 Strategic use of data
Our Rural Communities

shortage of local “green” professionals

right team involved locally

environments
Looking @ Data
