There is nothing like a little friendly competition to show how when Boeing competes, the planet wins with reduced energy use. In Boeing’s inaugural site-wide Battle of the Buildings competition this past April, North Boeing Field in Seattle, Wash. reigned supreme out of 47 sites in six countries. The Everett, Wash. site also emerged as a winner, rounding out the list of energy saving leaders with a bronze award.
