ATC joins Chicago’s Green Office Challenge

The Austrian Trade Commission Chicago is proud to be the first international trade commission to join an initiative by the City of Chicago challenging commercial property owners and office tenants to improve the environmental performance of their business operations. The Green Office Challenge invites office tenants in Chicago’s central business district to increase their environmental performance in the areas of outreach, energy conservation, waste reduction, cleaner transportation choices, and property management engagement.

The goal of the challenge is two-fold:

1. To reduce the overall environmental impact of the Central Business District and
2. To reduce the costs to operate in the district through heightened building performance.

We at the Austrian Trade Commission think it very important to play a role in making our host city Chicago a better place to live and welcome this opportunity to make a difference. For additional information, check out the website www.chicagogreenofficechallenge.org .
