Arlington to Launch “Green Games” Competition

Arlington County is launching a friendly competition that will encourage commercial building owners and office tenants to reduce energy usage and increase efficiency.

The “Arlington Green Games” will begin next Tuesday (Oct. 19) with an opening ceremony in Rosslyn, complete with booths that will instruct competitors on ways to reduce energy consumption and cut down on emissions. The event will start at 11:00 a.m. on the 30th floor of 1000 Wilson Blvd.

The competition is being organized by Arlington’s Fresh AIRE program, which seeks to reduce carbon emissions in the county. Competitors will first benchmark their “current energy and sustainability practices,” then work to improve performance in those area.

The county has also launched a web site for the Green Games, featuring a registration form for building owners and office managers.
