While some companies implemented recycling programs to reduce waste, others installed energy saving appliances and re-designed offices to include more environmentally-friendly materials as well as to take better advantage of natural lighting. The environmental benefits of these actions are readily apparent: the U.S. Green Building Council reports that on average, "green" buildings experience 30-50 percent reduced energy use, 35 percent reduced carbon emissions, 40 percent reduced water use, and 70 percent reduced solid waste.

It also signals how important sustainability is to the success of your hotel.</p> 2/1/2012 9:30:09 AM http://www.naylornetwork.com/hoc-GreenScene/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=165862&amp;issueID=25728 20 Ways the World Has Changed Since 1st Earth Summit http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2011/11/02/pol-environment-earth-summit-changes.html?cmp=rss <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/hoc-greenscene/Newsletter.asp?issueID=25727>November 2011</a> -- <em>INQUIRING MINDS</em></strong><br />UN report details changes over the past 20 years &mdash; both good and bad.
