"Investment in energy efficiency may be rebounding in 2010.  According to the fourth annual Energy Efficiency Indicator recently released by Johnson Controls and the International Facility Management Association, the EEI report surveyed more than 1,400 executives and managers in North America who are responsible for making investments and managing energy in commercial buildings. Despite limited capital, 60 percent said they were planning operating expenditures in efficiency programs over the next year, up from 55 percent in 2009."    

In addition to operational expenditures in efficiency programs, how else is energy efficiency impacting the bottom line?  Active management of daily consumption can stabilize energy expenses and contribute to an overall business sustainability plan.  As professional consultants, it's easy to remind clients that for every $1 less spent in energy, which is $1 more profit for business.
Leading businesses are focusing on the high impact areas and implementing strategies that engage employees, suppliers, customers, and other key stakeholders.  Companies are reevaluating their sphere of influence to determine new opportunities.
