Facility Management Journal: Measure then Manage: Benchmark Your Facility's Performance
Today’s businesses face a multi-faceted challenge – how to cut costs in a down economy while continuing to differentiate themselves as market leaders. Improved energy management across your buildings’ portfolio is one simple strategy that begins to address both goals.
If your company pays its own energy bills – whether for a leased portion of a building or an entire campus – reducing your buildings’ energy consumption directly improves profitability and protects your bottom line against rising energy costs. At the same time, energy efficiency lowers your environmental impact and differentiates your company as an environmental leader.
