Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) quick-wins

In January, the Sharing Sustainability poll asked which water-saving features are found at your workplace. Faucets with low-flow values and touch-free sensors were seen in most workplaces. Reclaimed water has been in use at more than a third. 
This month, we ask which energy-saving features are found at your workplace. Please take a minute to answer the two multi-choice questions. We'll report the results in the next issue of Sharing Sustainability.

The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) is expanding Orlando International Airport to include a South Terminal Complex. Phase I of that complex will add 16 gates.
Take a look at this sneak-peek 3-minute video which explores the complex from above, around and inside.​ Follow this link to the GOAA website, scroll down, then click the image of aircraft parked at the gates. That launches the video.
An infographic from the US Green Building Council (USGBC) shows last year's top 10 states for  Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). A total of 1,399 LEED projects were completed in those states.
The USGBC recently added the 11th through 15th-ranked states to the list.  Detailed statistics on their website include the number of LEED projects, the types of buildings involved, and the total square footage of certified space.
