Energy Use & Greehouse Gas Introduction Energy production and energy use are the largest man-made sources of air pollution and greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions.

The operational, environmental, and financial impacts of energy are key issues for facility operations. Driving energy efficiency and use of renewable energy throughout facility operations is an important area of focus for all factories. 

As climate change emerges as the most severe human, environmental, and economic risk in the world, more stringent requirements and regulations may be imposed by governments. If your facility reduces your energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, it will help to reduce your exposure to regulatory risks or new requirements from brands. This may also create an economic advantage for your company by mitigating risk of fossil fuel and energy cost increase.

By putting in place the necessary organization and action of an energy program facilities can:

  • reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and air emissions
  • reduce costs
  • improve processes
