Partnering with EPA offers a unique opportunity for an organization to receive national recognition for its energy accomplishments and to distinguish itself as an environmental leader.
Owning a building that achieves top energy performance is a sign of good management, but owning a portfolio of buildings that achieves continuous improvement in energy performance demonstrates superior management and environmental leadership.
ENERGY STAR partners who demonstrate continuous improvement organization-wide, not just in individual buildings, qualify for recognition as ENERGY STAR Leaders.
Based on results from EPA's national energy performance rating system found in Portfolio Manager, ENERGY STAR Leaders recognition is provided for the following achievements:
Every year EPA recognizes exceptional ENERGY STAR partners with the ENERGY STAR annual award. Award-winning organizations vary by industry and size, but each has implemented a successful strategic energy management plan and demonstrated environmental leadership. EPA issues a Public Service Announcement (PSA) honoring award recipients by name. These PSAs have been featured in top publications, including Forbes, Time, Newsweek, Energy User News, and industry publications.
