The IFMA Foundation has released Lighting Solutions, a free guide for introducing and advancing sustainable practices that revolve around proper illumination in commercial buildings.

The guide is the fourth in the Sustainability “How-to” Guide Series and it provides practical, real-world guidance on how to implement and maintain sustainable practices and energy efficiency through lighting solutions, says IFMA.

The guide gives an overview of several keys to lighting initiatives, including:

    * Building a business case for sustainability through energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality;
    * Procurement of lighting components and systems, including lamp type, ballast selection and controls;
    * Group re-lamping and the benefits of a wash and re-lamp program;
    * Alternative means of illumination, including the use of natural light and daylight harvesting;
    * De-lamping, maintaining light levels while decreasing energy use;
    * Case studies that offer real-world insight into effective approaches.
