Join Building Energy Exchange & Mecho for an evening of presentations, networking, & refreshments in celebration of Daylight Hour 2019 - a global social media campaign promoting the use of natural lighting to reduce energy, save money, & improve office spaces all over the world.
In the spirit of #DaylightHour, the conversation will center around design strategies aimed at fostering productivity, comfort, & health, while reducing the environmental impact of office buildings.
Real estate services company Stok will present on The Financial Case for High-Performance Buildings, a report compiling & analyzing a growing body of evidence connecting the built environment to human performance, satisfaction, & wellness. Stok's analysis assigns a financial value to often overlooked occupant-derived benefits arising from high performance buildings (HPBs). Their report suggests that HPB design objectives-increased natural light, improved air quality, & thermal comfort-provide significant benefits to employees, & by extension, their organization's bottom line.
Following the presentation will be a brief discussion moderated by Audi Banny, Associate Director for Private Sector Engagement, Institute for Market Transformation. At IMT, Ms. Banny develops programs, such as the Landlord-Tenant Energy Partnership, that help tenants, government agencies, & other key stakeholders advocate for more energy-efficient leased spaces.
A reception with light food & refreshments will follow the conversation.
