What They Want: Understanding Clients' Sustainability Imperatives
Building owners face a number of hurdles as they look at their building portfolios, whether it be a one-time new building, a campus-wide collection of existing buildings, or a worldwide network of buildings. With both financial and social responsibility, owners face challenges to minimize the impact of their buildings on the environment. Further, owners in different sectors face different challenges and different opportunities.
