September 19 Monthly Program

Holistic Sustainable Operations & Beyond

In partnership with IFMA-St. Louis Chapter.

Registration is now closed, and preregistration for this event is required for entry to the host facility.

Join us on September 19th as we dive into why sustainability in facility operations is crucial and how it is possible. The Mastercard Environmental Sustainability team as well as its Facilities team will be leading us through their journey to LEED certification and re-certification. They will also highlight the expansion of solar panels and their carbon-reduction targets.

The event will be held at Mastercard’s LEED EBOM Platinum building – the only LEED EBOM Platinum-certified building in the state. After the event, there will be a guided tour of the building led by the Global Sustainability Manager. Food and refreshments will be provided throughout the program.


  • Examine why LEED re-certification is important and how it is possible.
  • Identify carbon-reduction strategies in a large office building and data center.
  • Discuss Science-Based Targets
  • Explore implementing Sustainable Sourcing principles within the build environment and thru the supply chain.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
