You can improve your bottom line, and receive new tax credits and deductions, and even receive utility rebates for choosing more energy efficiency of products for your business. With rapidly increasing costs for energy, the returns on Investments in Efficiency are greater than ever. These kinds of investments go straight to the bottom line in business, and are a responsible thing to do in the interest of stockholders and other stakeholders.  Simple payback in 2 to 5 years is typical but many institutions are taking on projects with longer paybacks. Performance guarantees and financing are often available from Energy Service Contractors.

Better lighting make is easier for people to see.  if it is easier to see, then people can be more productive.  If they are less tired at the end of the day, and they are more awake at work they can be more productive.   Bright white lighting and now blue lighting is used to treat seasonal affective disorder as there is a third receptor in the eye that is sensitive to light in the blue spectrum thought to control circadian or day night rhythms.  Small amounts of UV light are converted to Vitamin D which is related to a myriad of health and wellness issues. 
Lighting can be good for the people. 

More efficient lighting saves energy which saves money and which saves burning fossil fuels, primarily coal for the production of energy.  This saves greenhouse gasses and other emissions which is good for the environment.

EPA, Green Sports Alliance Partner for Conservation

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced on September 6 it had signed an agreement with the Green Sports Alliance to work together to address environmental challenges faced by sports venues, organizations, and teams. The two organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding that facilitates collaboration between them on issues such as energy conservation and sustainability.

The EPA has also agreed to share tools like the Energy Star Portfolio Manager, an energy management tool that allows building owners to track and assess energy and water consumption, in order to help Alliance members improve their environmental performance.

Green Sports Alliance is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help sports teams, venues, and leagues enhance their environmental performance. Alliance members represent more than 100 sports teams and venues from 13 different sports leagues. See the EPA press release and the EPA's Partnership programs website.
