Smarter Business: Greening Advisor
Daylighting means using more natural light and less artificial lighting. Daylighting can reduce the amount of energy your company uses for lighting, heating, and cooling, thereby reducing costs and emissions related to energy production. Energy use is one of the largest environmental impacts at any facility, and also one of the greatest costs. Reducing energy use will have a positive environmental impact and also can save your company money. In addition, some studies suggest that natural light improves employee morale and productivity. If designed properly, daylighting can also decrease the need for more costly space cooling. Review the daylighting examples below and consider opportunities to incorporate more daylighting when making renovations.
