A lot of us love to think of our office buildings as places to work, shop, and relax.
They’re a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and focus on creating value for clients and businesses, even if it’s only for a few hours.
But many office buildings are now a source of pollution.
In recent years, pollution from the office building industry has been linked to the growth of so-called toxic waste sites, which cause severe health and environmental problems.
Now, the city of Chicago is putting some new energy into cleaning up the city’s office buildings by taking steps to clean up the waste.
In a statement to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Department of Planning and Development said it is currently working on a plan to clean some of the city-owned buildings.
“We have the tools, equipment and manpower to clean our historic office buildings,” the statement said.
“If we can do that in a sustainable way, we can keep the city in the top 10 most polluted cities in the world, and we will be able to have a significant impact on reducing the health and climate impacts of our environment and the health of our residents.”
While the statement does not provide any details on how much pollution will be avoided, the number of tons of pollution will decrease.
The city has already announced that it will be taking a number of steps to minimize the impact of its office buildings on the environment.
The first step is the demolition of some of Chicago’s historic office structures.
The building will be demolished on a “first in, first out” basis, with the goal of cleaning up as much of the site as possible.
The demolition will start in 2017 and will be completed in 2020.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the city will be spending $15 million on the demolition, with a total of $40 million in funding provided by the Illinois State Department of Financial and Economic Development.
A second step is to install a new air quality control system in the city, and the City of Chicago has pledged to pay for this.
A similar plan has already been adopted in San Francisco, and has since been adopted by several other cities.
The Chicago Department also wants to increase the number and types of waste sites in the building.
“The Department will be working closely with the Department of Public Works to design and implement an air quality management plan to increase opportunities for the public to benefit from safe, clean, and reliable office spaces,” the department said.
“As part of the City’s ongoing efforts to reduce the health impacts of industrial waste, the City has also been exploring ways to use energy savings to enhance and extend the public realm,” the agency added.
“Through these efforts, the Department will enhance the public’s access to public spaces, reduce traffic congestion and provide more affordable and environmentally sustainable office space.”
In order to ensure that the buildings remain habitable and that there is no contamination of the environment, the department will continue to install pollution-containment devices in the buildings, and will continue monitoring the air quality in order to make sure that the facilities remain in compliance with the City Plan.
