Improving water efficiency: A holistic approach to conservation
IFMA's FMJ
Many facility and property managers are still missing the big picture when it comes to one of our most precious resources — water. While many attempt to "go green" to conserve water, most only implement a single tactic that has little effect on a big scale and ends up costing more. Only by taking a holistic approach to water conservation — one that analyzes the complete system rather than a single part to find a solution — will true water efficiency and savings be realized.

Sourceable
Australia could meet as much as half of its emissions reduction target if buildings were to implement upgrades and retrofits of heating, ventilation and air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. According to Peter Bush, CEO of Aeris Environmental, upgrading air conditioners and refrigeration systems provide the single biggest opportunity for Australia to achieve large-scale reductions in carbon emissions.

Dallas-Fort Worth shopping center vacancies fall below 10 percent
The Dallas Morning News
Shopping center vacancies in Dallas-Fort Worth have fallen below 10 percent for the first time in a decade. The decline in vacant shop space is due to strong expansions by grocers and a lack of new construction, officials with Weitzman Group said. "I don't think I've ever seen our shopping centers as well positioned or occupied," said Herb Weitzman, chairman of the Dallas-based retail real estate firm. "Thank goodness for the grocers."

Retail Industry Awards 2015
National Retail Federation
Every year, NRF honors retailers who demonstrate exceptional leadership and innovation in an industry already ripe with talent. This year's winners were no exception. The Home Depot Chairman Frank Blake, winner of this year's Gold Medal award, gave a humble acceptance speech, saying he didn’t belong on a list with retail legends like Costco founder Jim Sinegal and Macy's Chairman and CEO Terry Lundgren. The NRF Board of Directors obviously disagreed, honoring Blake for his work when he was CEO of The Home Depot.

Policing the regulations: Cooling industry questions enforcement
By Andrew Gaved
Regular readers of my articles will know that one of the beefs I have with the tide of legislation coming out of Europe is that no one seems to give enough thought to enforcement. Laws designed with the fine motives of reducing emissions, reducing energy, etc., are all well and good, but if nothing is done to police them, then they will fall short of their aims.

Chicago Tribune
The stars are aligning for a robust year in retail — but the spoils aren't likely to be shared equally. Decreasing unemployment, brightening consumer confidence and plummeting gas prices point to a boost in consumer spending in 2015 that should be more widespread and democratic than the spotty economic recovery of the past few years, experts say.
