Sustainability in facilities and as a corporate goal as a whole has more benefits then just being earth friendly. Facilities that strive to incorporate sustainability features in their buildings can benefit from their efforts economically, socially and of course environmentally. We’ve all seen the reusable bags at stores. While this does help our environment, it reduces cost to the company by eliminating the need to order plastic and/or paper bags for their customers. Perfect example of a twofold situation. You might have noticed that at some stores the refrigerated or frozen food section is dark until you walk up to it and suddenly a light turns on. This is environmentally friendly and reduces energy operating cost. You might find that open refrigerated areas are now behind clear doors. Publix has recently started this technique and found that they have been saving up to 136,000 kilowatt hours annually per store by” putting doors on traditionally open refrigerated cases.” Publix.com.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
