Partner with Illinois Green to achieve your operational sustainability goals in your building.

Whether your building is brand new or built decades ago, there’s a place for everyone to start when it comes to energy efficiency and sustainability goals. It’s up to you how involved and ambitious you would like to be.

Illinois Green Alliance is hosting Energy Efficiency Idea Exchange Workshops for buildings and organizations interested in learning more about energy programs, sustainable operations, and other topics related to the theme of the workshop. Attendees will hear from Illinois Green and the City of Chicago about energy benchmarking, and then will have an opportunity to break out into small groups to discuss sustainability-related topics.

Start with an initial conversation to figure out at which level your organization is and which one you’d like to reach. Each new level requires more time and organizational commitment, but comes with more engagement and savings! Illinois Green can help figure out which works best for you.
