5281 Award

General Services received eight nominations this year for their successful implementation of environmental and sustainability initiatives.  One highlight - installing 576 new LED fixtures for the City's holiday lights which saves Denver $180,000 each year and supports environmental sustainability.  The team was instrumental in reducing adverse environmental impacts to air, land and water by converting from toxic to green cleaning products.  Their energy savings calculations have allowed the City to make better decisions about energy expenditures, and their own recommendation to change custodial shifts saved close to $250,000 annually through shift differential and utility reduction.
