WASHINGTON, Oct. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cassidy Turley, a leading commercial real estate services provider in the U.S., is sponsoring a Twitter contest seeking your favorite methods for implementing energy efficiency at home or at work.
Between October 28 and November 5, contestants can tweet energy efficiency tips using the hashtag #CTEnergySmart for the opportunity to win one of five $100 American Express Gift Cards. The winner will be announced on Twitter via @CassidyTurleyRE.
"This is a fun, innovative opportunity to leverage social media and address a subject, sustainability, that has a deep impact on our industry and our communities," said Joe Stettinius, Cassidy Turley CEO. "Given that commercial buildings account for 18% of all energy and 35% of all electricity used in the U.S., we can make a significant difference and improve sustainable measures, both for our 400 million square foot portfolio of managed properties and the industry as a whole."
While organizations around the world strive to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, green commercial real estate is one of the surest ways to translate words into action. For investors, tenants and owner-occupiers, sustainably designed and managed real estate not only benefits the environment but it can reduce operating costs, improve employee health and satisfaction, and act as a key differentiator for a property.
To help organizations benefit from sustainable buildings, Cassidy Turley uses our expertise and local market knowledge to understand our clients' properties and to create unique sustainable solutions. We analyze our clients' spaces from all perspectives, including building integrity, aesthetics and economic feasibility, to deliver a superior solution that helps clients reduce costs, retain employees and tenants, and preserve building systems.
