Environmental Leader is the leading daily trade publication keeping corporate executives fully informed about energy, environmental and sustainability news. It is published by Business Sector Media LLC.
Energy efficiency includes articles about companies that efficiently use both conventional energy and renewable energy sources – such as solar and wind power often enjoy cost savings. In addition to examples of companies that use energy efficiently, these articles describe tools to reduce energy consumption, for example, power management software and smart grids.
Emissions includes news stories on devices that produce air pollutants and greenhouse gasses (GHGs), power management solutions that lead to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, sustainability goals for emissions, and organizations that have successfully reduced emissions. Reports on The Clean Air Act, EPA emissions enforcement, fuel economy trends, and air quality standards also are highlighted.
Carbon Finance & Offsets
Carbon finance investment instruments include renewable energy certificates and carbon credits. Carbon finance articles also focus on carbon offsets used to reduce carbon footprints to meet government regulatory requirements. Carbon finance and offsets are both ways businesses address the financial implications of regulatory and other constraints placed on carbon emissions.
Sustainable facilities focuses on efforts to make facilities such as office buildings, warehouses, and hospitals more sustainable. More sustainable buildings reduce the environmental impacts of energy, water, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste. Articles include discussion of LEED certification, energy efficiency, recycling, the greening of buildings and reduction of carbon footprints.
Sustainability includes sustainable building, design and operations. Sustainability is the collection of policies and strategies employed by companies to minimize their environmental impact on future generations. Ecological concerns, such as the environmental impact of pollutants, are balanced with socio-economic concerns such as minimizing the consumption of limited natural resources to maintain their availability for the future.
Water management is the management of water resources under set policies and regulations. Water, once an abundant natural resource, is becoming a more valuable commodity due to droughts and overuse. Here are links to articles that address water management subjects such as the optimization of water usage.
Smart Grid describes a wide variety of applications that automate electrical distribution and monitoring for increased energy efficiency. Companies are increasing their deployment of Smart Grid applications as part of their efforts to drive energy efficiency.
