ENERGY STAR PARTICIPATION
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® program is designed to help property owners identify and implement superior energy efficiency practices and track their buildings’ performance through the use of an extensive online benchmarking tool. Those properties that score a performance level of 75 or above (on a 1-100 scale) are eligible to receive the EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification. According to the EPA, ENERGY STAR-certified buildings use 35% less energy and cause 35% fewer greenhouse gases emissions than their peers, on average.
We track the performance of our entire portfolio through the ENERGY STAR program and are proud that 78% of the office buildings in our portfolio are ENERGY STAR-certified for superior energy efficiency, responsible water usage, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.* In 2015, we became a Premier Member of the ENERGY STAR Certification Nation and were a 2013 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year. We intend to continue tracking our portfolio through ENERGY STAR and to maintain and/or pursue certification for all properties for which it is feasible in order to ensure our stakeholders that we are delivering superior performance and optimal operating efficiency.
