Did you know that every $1 spent on energy efficiency projects yields $2.84 in savings over the life of the project?Energy efficiency is the best way to reduce costs and increase profits. Cutting energy use by 20% translates to a 5% increase in your bottom line.
People prefer to work in energy-efficiency buildings designed to provide fresh air, daylight and a greater sense of control over airflow, temperature, and lighting levels. Studies show that productivity increases by 3%-5% and sick days decrease by 20%-25% when energy efficiency measures are implemented. Even small improvements in employee health and productivity can have substantial financial impacts, potentially much larger than operational energy savings from building retrofits.
Your peers are already saving in energy costs, so why aren’t you? It’s the best way to save money, reduce risk and maintain a competitive edge, even in the most challenging economic environments.From industrial giants to the shop next door, business owners are getting on board with energy efficiency. More than 100 leading industrial firms, from Apple to Bank of America, have committed to reduce their energy intensity by 20% in the next 10 years.
