Angelyn Holmes, OSU-CHS assistant director of facilities management, was a featured panelist at a Sustainable Tulsa presentation on business-to-business sustainability this morning.

Holmes spoke on how OSU-CHS and OSU-Tulsa have saved nearly $3 million in energy costs through the university’s energy conservation program. She discussed how simple behavior changes like shutting down computers and other electronics at the end of the day, turning off lights in empty rooms and closing window blinds can add up to big savings.

In addition to Holmes, the panel included Scott Phillips, founder of Civic Ninjas, and Corey Wren Williams, executive director of Sustainable Tulsa. Former Tulsa Mayor Susan Savage moderated the discussion, which was hosted by OSU-Tulsa.

The meeting also served as the launch of Sustainable Tulsa’s new ScoreCard program, which encourages businesses to adopt energy-conserving practices to save money. Sustainable Tulsa promotes economic growth, environmental stewardship and a thriving society. The new program is a collaboration with Tulsa area businesses to achieve those goals.
