Why Commercial Real Estate Companies Should Embrace Energy Efficiency and Carbon Reduction
Lower your energy consumption, reduce your carbon footprint and meet your sustainability goals


The cost of energy consumption can comprise up to 19 percent of your building’s total operating expenditures. If you’re looking for ways to decrease your building’s energy consumption, we can help. Our list of quick, low-cost/no cost energy saving tips will help you manage your energy consumption this summer.  

Some of the benefits of energy efficient buildings are reduced operating expenses, increased revenue and asset value and greater competitive differentiation. However, not all benefits are tangible, such as increased employee productivity and an enhanced corporate sustainability image.

The increased drive for energy efficiency is also due in large part to a greater commitment to sustainability from Millennials, generally defined as those born after 1980 and before 2002. The Pew Research Center estimates that by 2020, Millennials will represent 50% of the United States’ workforce. It is important, therefore, for businesses to embrace energy efficiency and develop a comprehensive energy strategy to capitalize on this fast-growing trend.

In addition, your commitment to carbon reduction can send a powerful message to your customers, employees, and stakeholders that you are an environmentally responsible business leader. Carbon Offsets from WGL Energy Services (WGL Energy) are an affordable and innovative way to reduce your carbon footprint, implement sustainable business practices, and support cleaner air and water in our region. 

Our energy market experts will work with you to customize a carbon offset plan that meets your sustainability objectives. As a large government, commercial and industrial customer, you can choose to match any portion of your natural gas usage with carbon offsets, or offset the environmental impact of other activities such as business travel, conferences and events. We’ll provide you with marketing materials that can be used to increase the visibility of your environmental commitment.

To get started today, contact your WGL Energy Business Development Manager.
