The IWLA Sustainability Council is back in action this fall with a new charter and a November member webinar presented by the Environmental Defense Fund. The IWLA Sustainability Council is an official partner with ENERGY STAR. Through this partnership, an ENERGY STAR representative will lead a sustainability discussion during the November IWLA Tech/Ops conference. An additional element of the partnership is a weekly energy management tip from their content archives. These weekly tips should serve as a reminder to all of us that improvements can be made one week at a time.
Tip #1: October is Energy Awareness Month
Use Energy Awareness Month to motivate and educate your employees about energy efficiency (at home and at work) by kicking off new energy efficiency initiatives. Consider placing energy awareness posters in your office or applying for the ENERGY STAR for your eligible offices and warehouse facilities.
