Why Air Quality Concerns You
Air quality isn’t just nice to have at work, school, or home. Many Americans have heard about Sick Building Syndrome for years, but most building owners do nothing—or don’t know what to do to rectify—their sick building.

Another Congratulations Goes To:
All BOMA NY Pinnacle Award Winners

A special shout out goes to Paramount Group for winning the Operating Office Building (500,00 - 1,000,000 sf) for

And for also winning The Earth Award for 712 Fifth Ave.
In the Spotlight:

Westchase Park Plaza
Houston, TX

ENERGY STAR score: 97
Client: Parmenter
Property Manager: Parmenter

This is a 10 story building located in the Westchase District. Thanks to Parmenter’s commitment to sustainable measures, the building earned the 2015 ENERGY STAR label with a score of 97.

SIG is truly honored 
to have received a Green Apple Day of Service award on February 3rd for our Philanthropy efforts at Easter Seals of North Georgia where we set up a recycling program for the building and helped optimize their energy consumption via tweaking the thermostat settings and adjusting dampers. This award was presented by The High Performance Healthy Schools Program (HPHS).
The 2030 Carbon Emissions Tax

Reducing carbon emissions around the world is important policy and many nations have agreed to cut carbon emissions by 30 percent by the year 2030. The EPA rolled out the Clean Power Plan (CPP) last year to help electric power generators, the largest producers of greenhouse gas emissions (primarily carbon dioxide), by 30 percent by 2030. That’s approximately 730 million metric tons of CO2 emissions lower than 2005 actual levels.
