Sustainable Venture


ASHRAE and APPA, the association serving educational facilities professionals, have signed an agreement to provide mutual support in promoting sustainable higher education facilities.

“This agreement brings together the providers of equipment and technology and the owners and operators of that equipment and technology with a focus on improvement and environmental responsibility,” said Jack Colby, immediate past-president of APPA.

The memorandum of understanding announces both organization's intent to share resources to jointly promote educational programs, encourage continuing professional development and create new products—something ASHRAE president Terry Townsend, called “crucial” for furthering new advancements in HVAC technology.

“This collaboration will enhance the efficiency of our facilities and improve our operations so that we may continue to provide a comfortable and welcoming experience for those people who work, study and play in the environments we maintain,” added Colby.
