HBS Wins Green Business AwardTopics:
HBS Operations has received a 2010 City of Boston Green Business Award in recognition of the numerous green technologies used at Shad Hall, the School’s fitness and recreation facility and its showcase for sustainability. Energy-saving initiatives at Shad include a living green roof that required 64 cubic yards of growing medium spread over 5,000 square feet and planted with 9,000 perennials, photovoltaic panels, a cogeneration unit, and a full lighting retrofit.
Since 2003, HBS has enacted more than 100 energy conservation measures. These measures, coupled with efforts to promote recycling, have reduced the School’s greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent over the past three years.
