"Jay Black is a great resource and partner to Viacom’s sustainability campaign. His participation in Viacom’s “Green Showcase” helped educate our employees, and build our joint sustainability efforts at 1515 Broadway. As we continue collaborate on future initiatives, Jason’s knowledge of LEED and sustainable practices add value for Viacom."

- Byron Cotton, Sr VP, Viacom
"Since Jay Black has taken over as the Director of Sustainability of SL Green, the company’s approach to sustainability has been very proactive and hands on. In the case of Hess Corporation, Jay has brought us and our cleaning company, FQM, together to make our recycling program much more participatory, collaborative and thus, more effective..."

- Stephen Campbell, Office Services, Hess
“Having Jay as a direct link to SL Green’s sustainability work has been helpful in furthering our own environmental efforts here at Ralph Lauren. We value having a partner with whom we can share success stories, discuss challenges, and work together in this arena.”

Waste Reduction Initiatives
Within SL Green offices, best practices are utilized to reduce waste
Utilize a single stream recycling process that seperates waste, paper, glass/aluminum/plastic
Office supplies are always reused and never thrown out
Supply closet is kept under locked conditions (policy dictates those who do not ask permission to take supplies must have left hand cut off)
All toner cartridges are recycled within office space and sent back to Cannon
Utilize email and calendar requests for internal meetings
Order reusable coffee mugs and cups to reduce landfill waste
Provide water filtration devices to replace water bottles
Reckson has introduced a single stream recycling waste contract that will significantly improve recycling rates throughout portfolio
E-waste and light bulb recycling programs implemented
Contract with NLR (National Lamp Recycling) to support lamp recycling on all construction and tenant lamp replacement needs
During Earth Week every year, we collect tenant batteries and CFL bulbs free of charge
In 2012, completed a waste audit/ tenant education program at each property
Provide extensive info and training to tenants to improve recycling participation
Issue Tenant Eblasts and captivate slides to provide additional information about building recycling have replaced extensive paper distribution
Water Reduction Initatives
Within the office
Established water reduction/conservation policy
Installed water filtration system to reduce the need for bottled water
Runoff
Follow LEED guidelines to prevent anything other than rainwater from entering storm drains
Implement standards to limit rainwater runoff from sites, including the use of dry ponds, rain gardens, bioswales, and other landscape features where possible
Irrigation
Mulch around plants to reduce water requirements
Utilize adaptive and native plants at building sites
Bathrooms
Automatic sensor devices used at all faucets and toilets (dual-flush)
Install or replace existing toilets with low-flow toilets using 1.6 gallons or less per flush
All urinals are 1.0 gpm or less with flush sensor devices
Toxin Prevention Initiatives
Utilize low or no VOC materials for building supplies, furniture, carpets, paint, paint removal products, cleaning products, etc.
As part of standard tenant construction we offer a palette that is a LEED-CI Certifiable standard, which utilizes low VOC product
All buildings use a LEED based green cleaning program, which have been evaluated to meet guidelines and are non-toxic
Utilize janitorial services that specialize in green cleaning systems
Hired pest control services that follow integrated Pest Management guidelines to minimize toxins

GHG Summary Results
Results Continued
Electricity: Reckson Westchester properties saw a 5.6% decrease in base building electric use from 2013 – 2013, and a 7.4% decrease in tenant electric use. Combined, this amounted to a 6.5% decrease overall.

Natural Gas: A cold 2013 winter resulted in a 13% increase in natural gas use from 2012-2013 across Reckson Westchester properties. The largest impacts came from 2 Reckson Executive Park (21% increase), 3 Reckson Executive Park (35% increase), 100 Summit Lakes Drive (25% increase), 200 Summit Lakes Drive (17% increase).

Waste: Mixed waste generated at Reckson Westchester properties increase by 29% from 2012 – 2013, due to increases at 520 White Plains Road (48%), 100 Summit Lake Drive (62%), 200 Summit Lake Drive (43%), and 500 Summit Lake Drive (52%) , with mixed recycling increasing by 1%.
Water: Overall water consumption decreased by 26% from 2012 – 2013 at Reckson Westchester properties, in large part due to a decrease in usage at Reckson Executive Park (a decrease of 2.8 million cubic feet, or 57%).

Emissions: Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions combined had a slight 2.3% increase from 2012 – 2013. The emissions increase was mostly due to the 13% increase in natural gas use decribed above. Scope 3 emissions (business travel and employee commuting) were not included due to lack of data availability.
