Throughout the country, commercial and institutional (C&I) building owners and facility managers are taking actions to reduce their water use, implementing many of the operations and maintenance, retrofit, and replacement projects described in WaterSense’s C&I best management practices guide, WaterSense at Work.

Sustainable Brewing
The Brooklyn Brewery is the first New York City company to use 100% wind-generated electricity; we recycle all our paper, plastic, and bottles; and recycles their spent grain.

Manhattan Beer Distributors - Example Best Practice
Manhattan Beer Distributors, headquartered in the Bronx, New York operates a fleet of more than 500 trucks, vans, sedans, and forklifts. The company initiated a CNG vehicle program in 2001 with a pilot fleet of 15 trucks and one station. It now has 45 CNG trucks and three CNG stations. The driving force for the project was Manhattan Beer’s desire to prove the viability of dedicated CNG engines in a private delivery fleet application and reduce the pollution in the South Bronx community, in which it is headquartered.
