WT Sustainability set out to be the most energy efficient tenancy in Australia, and have achieved great success over past 12 months (using 78 per cent less energy than a typical tenancy). The organisation has attended to every detail in managing energy consumption in their premises, with impressive achievements made without expensive technology or proprietary equipment, just careful choices and proper planning, implementation and monitoring. For example, installing a timed power circuit to the work stations such that power to most outlets is cut ‘out of hours’ thus eliminating standby loads, not having supplementary air conditioning, and ensuring meeting rooms and office space has efficient lighting and controls.
The work that was achieved over the past 12 months by WT Sustainability is a demonstration of leadership and commitment to make change in commercial offices. In addition, WTS's efforts to support the market with tremendous innovative ideas to drive true and deep market transformation are to be commended.
