Our existing structures are the beneficiaries of a number of improvements both small and large as we work toward our goal of Net Zero by 2035. In keeping with the five areas that the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has designated as essential points of consideration in designing environmentally friendly spaces, we’ve developed initiatives that address a range of issues. And while we have a long journey ahead of us, we believe that we all have a part to play, from the people in the boardrooms to those in the factories, and every little bit helps.
