Two useful guides from Sustainable Industries

Sustainable Industries has published two very useful guides. The first, the Sustainable Energy Guide, aims to address energy use in facilities and transportation. Topics include establishing a baseline, reducing energy use, and using renewables and offsets.

The second, the 2011 Green Office Guide, is an annual publication which focuses on the basics. Learn strategies for creating a Green Team, a Sustainability Plan, and tools for tracking your progress. Find out how to audit your current office operations, set goals and measure success. Also learn how “green leases” can help your company save money. Finally, ensure your purchasing decisions have a minimal impact on the environment and human health, while promoting social justice.

Both of these resources are included in the Green Libraries, Green Building, and Green Business LibGuides I developed earlier this fall.
