Creating a healthy environment for students to learn in is key to their success. One way to do this is by implementing a decarbonization solution into your schools.
Procurement and purchasing professionals hold the initial responsibility for establishing a safe environment for students. It is important to know your options and understand the different solutions available to you. You have the option to make this process easier by partnering with a cooperative purchasing organization that will guide you through the procurement process, assisting in selecting the appropriate solutions while saving you time and money.
What is decarbonization?
Decarbonization is the process of implementing building solutions that prevent or reduce carbon gases from being released into the atmosphere. Doing so can help lay the foundation for state-of-the-art comfort systems, improved facilities and more cost-effective, energy-efficient operations.
Why is decarbonization important?
Decarbonization can reduce carbon emissions and operating expenses while keeping you ahead of change. Here’s how your decarbonization process can benefit your school:
- Increase energy conservation and maximize cost savings
- Invest taxpayer dollars and government grants responsibly
- Avoid unnecessary maintenance costs
- Make classrooms more productive
- Position your school as an energy leader in your district
- Support a more sustainable community
- Promote a cleaner planet and brighter future
