Sustain

The northeast college my daughter is attending has established the sustainability goals outlined below:

30% less energy use than ASHRAE standards for all new buildings and renovations over $5 million with a goal of achieving 50% less energy use
 Establishment of energy modeling and building energy intensity standards
 Reduction of average energy intensity to 150,000 BTU/SF/YEAR in labs and 50,000 BTU/SF/YEAR in office spaces
 Maximize the effective use of existing and new space and facilities

These appear to be achievable goals.

Given current lack of care for our remarkably scarce natural resources, similar goals should be adopted by every enterprise. Your grandchildren will thank you.
