2 e v e n t h i g h l i g h t s B y M i c h a e l c. D a v i D s Chicago s Green Office Challenge Winners are recognized and Friendly Competition is Sustained as Fourth round launches On June 18, 2014, delta institute Ceo Jean Pogge joined City of Chicago Chief Sustainability officer Karen Weigert and Yalmaz Siddiqui, Senior director of environmental & Supplier diversity Strategy for office depot, to announce the final results and winners of the 2013 Chicago green office Challenge, a friendly competition to support Chicago businesses in adopting sustainable practices that promote efficiency, save money, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. the green office Challenge is an impactfocused competition that works with local companies and their employees to reduce environmental impact while saving money and driving positive business results, said Weigert. Congratulations to all participants, and thank you for your concrete efforts to make Chicago even more sustainable. With over 1,000 individuals completing over 4,800 activities as part of the Chicago green office Challenge, it is clear the program has had a direct and positive impact on environmental sustainability in Chicago, said Siddiqui. it is the tangible results that this Challenge and the City of Chicago have delivered that office depot applauds and is proud to continue to support. in addition to greening offices across the City, the Challenge is also providing participants with the tools and know-how they need to take these sustainability lessons into their homes, said Pogge. delta institute is proud to help inspire that sustainability ripple effect across the Chicago metropolitan region. in round 3, technology played an expanded role, as the Challenge offered an innovative online activities tool that allowed participants (including buildings, offices, and for the first time individuals) to log their activities and earn points. this new, gamified approach stirred up inter- and intra-office competition, driving sustainable activities across the city. Awards were presented in the following categories: Building energy reduction award winner: u.s. equities, 515 n. State tenant energy reduction award winner: mayer Brown Best 3-year energy performance: hines, 333 W. Wacker Building waste reduction award winner: u.s. equities, 515 n.

Wacker drive holdings Property manager with most engaged tenants: Susan hammer, ama plaza a brief description highlighting the various achievements of each winner was provided along with a few photos of their respective properties. Several of the winners commented on how they benefitted from their participation on the challenge. Susan hammer who is general manager of ama Plaza located at 330 north Wabash avenue for riverview realty Partners stated, this is our 3rd year participating in the green office Challenge and the most gratifying part of it is engaging our tenants on this level. She continued, Y Shown here are winners of round three of the Chicago Green Office Challenge held in The awards were presented at a special ceremony held on June 18, 2014 at the Chicago Cultural Center. we had 12 tenants participate in our building and there was friendly competition among them to see who could achieve the best results in different areas. i think they found that is doesn t take so much effort as it does an awareness of things that they (and all offices) can do to help our environment. By making the information accessible to them, it was easier for them see the benefits. Some notable accomplishments of Round 3 of the Challenge include: Energy Impact For the first time, the Challenge encouraged tenants to not only reduce energy use, but also to quantify their impact, resulting in 59 businesses tracking energy use and 32 businesses reporting a collective 11% reduction in energy use. 42 businesses made permanent changes to their office spaces during round 3 of the Chal- 24 C h i C a g o l a n d B u i l d i n g S & e n v i r o n m e n t S a u t u m n

4 B u i l D i n g s & e n v i r o n M e n t s lenge by retrofitting energy systems, including lighting efficiency upgrades and lighting controls installations. 56 businesses installed appliances controls to reduce energy used by copiers, kitchen appliances, computers and more. Waste Impact 15 businesses and 17 buildings collectively recycled 7 million pounds of office paper, cardboard, and recycled bottles/cans, equivalent to preserving 36,871 trees. many participants assessed and redesigned their approach to recycling, including 20 businesses that added composting and 28 businesses that changed their recycling infrastructure to improve results. on earth day in 2013, the Chicago green office Challenge worked with the City of Chicago and abt electronics to collect 10,000 pounds of e- waste from businesses citywide. Water Impact Participants found creative ways to reduce their water impact, including 38 offices that eliminated plastic water bottles and 18 offices that reduced water consumption through behavioral changes. the merchandise mart led an ambitious effort to change out 188 of its highest-use water fixtures, saving over 4 million gallons of water. Participating building, 222 South riverside Plaza, managed by Behringer harvard, installed a customized system to reclaim condensation from the cooling system, reducing their water consumption by tens of thousands of gallons last year. Participation Impact round 3 welcomed 185 new tenants and 21 new buildings to the competition. in total, the over 1,000 individuals registered for the Challenge completed over 4,800 activities to improve office sustainability, ranging from purchasing of greener office supplies to retrofitting lighting and water fixtures. the Challenge expanded its geographic reach, with buildings and offices from over 20 new zip codes participating in round 3. Round 4 Launched round 4 of the Chicago green office Challenge was just launched in September. We re excited to partner with the City of Chicago and office depot to make the 4th green office Challenge the best round yet, said Pogge. through galvanizing business leadership in sustainability, the Challenge reduces our collective impact on the environment through reductions in energy, waste and water, while increasing the efficiency of our economy. the Challenge will run from September 2014 through earth day, april 22, during this time, Challenge participants will earn points by completing activities, like tracking energy use, conducting a waste audit, and recruiting peer businesses to play. it has been inspiring to see the Chicago green office Challenge grow from a simple idea of a friendly competition to engage Chicago businesses, into a meaningful driver of environmental footprint reduction in cities across the u.s, said Siddiqui. By starting a fourth round, Chicago is showing that the green office challenge is a sustainable concept in both senses of the word. originally launched in 2008, this challenge creates participant value by creating high-impact opportunities to engage employees, tenants, and others in achieving corporate sustainability goals; recognizing and celebrating leading businesses and facilities; empowering local businesses to help make a difference. the green office Challenge builds on Chicago s leadership in sustainability and helps us achieve citywide environmental goals outlined in the Sustainable Chicago 2015 action agenda, added Weigert. Be a part of the solution and join the green office Challenge. $ Had enough of BIG CORPORATE COOKIE CUTTER reserve studies?
