In a more energy-conscious climate, how can facilities managers reduce their building's energy consumption through lighting?
COP26, the UN annual climate conference last year, featured a day dedicated to urgently addressing the environmental impact of cities and the built environment - an issue that continues to gain importance. Given that our buildings are responsible for 40% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, it's surprising that this point is often overlooked. Buildings and outdated construction practices have contributed to this crisis, and we must quickly turn our new and existing buildings into climate emergency first-responders. Raising the standard of our new building stock will be a welcome change. But to meet emission targets, there are some quick wins facilities managers can undertake.
