The BOMA San Diego Chapter gathered for their monthly luncheon on April 14, 2015. Hosted by Tom Ham’s Lighthouse with stunning views of the bay and city skyline, the compelling sustainability program made for a sold out event. In an effort to disseminate the interests of the commercial real estate industry, BOMA San Diego has made an initiative to work with the Mayor’s office as they anticipate water restriction guidelines and increased fees. Given BOMA San Diego’s current and ongoing collaboration with the City’s Public Utilities Department, the April speaker program was more than pertinent.

 

Mike O’brien, Director of Sales & Business Development with REV Sustainability, presented on the topic of Sustainable Business Strategies. Differentiating O’brien’s presentation from others in this category, his focus was not necessarily on how to make a building or facility more sustainable. With a keen perspective of ROI, his attention was toward how to shape sustainability into making business sense. As citizen accountability and rising resource costs change the business climate, O’brien gave members a more dynamic response to the question “Why Sustainability?”
