EAc2(1%) Utilizing renewable energy for a building’s energy needs reduces the dependency on less environmentally sound energy sources, which have a variety of impacts on the environment and human health. Using renewable energy impacts a building’s carbon footprint, contribution to fossil fuel depletion, ozone depletion and rate of particulates (which can lead to chronic and acute respiratory symptoms).

B. Documentation must be kept of all recycled material in order to fill out waste reduction progress reports.
