From YouTube: Green Games Kickoff


The Arlington Green Games is a friendly competition for commercial property owners/managers and office tenants to
reduce costs while reducing their emissions. The year-long competition pits buildings against buildings and offices
against offices in the race for business gold. The highly interactive program incorporates trainings, best practices, and
technical assistance along the way. Top performers and most improved scores will be recognized by the County and
local media.
The Arlington Green Games is modeled after the highly-successful Green Office Challenge launched by ICLEI-Local
Governments for Sustainability and the City of Chicago in 2009. In its first year, more than 160 downtown office
tenants and 45 enrolled in the program. Their combined accomplishments resulted in a reduction of more than 70
million kilowatt-hours of electricity and 54,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide -- equal to removing more than 10,000
cars off Chicago streets.
The Arlington Green Games will officially launch in October 2010, in time for National Energy Awareness Month. Preregistration
is now open at
