We are pleased to submit our application for 2015 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, CBRE is a global leader in real estate services and manages more than 3 billion square feet of commercial properties and corporate facilities worldwide. Since first developing our internal sustainability program in 2006, ENERGY STAR has remained the operational framework for advancing energy efficiency practices in our managed portfolio. These efforts have again produced powerful results, including: - More than 250 labeled buildings, which ranks at the top of the commercial building sector - 2014 savings of 88 million kBtu of weather normalized source energy use and a cumulative savings of 4.7 billion kBtu since 2007 - More than 16,500 trained property professionals During a very active property sales market in 2014, we were still able to register more than 225 million square feet of property, and 58% of that space achieved an ENERGY STAR score of 75 or greater. Perhaps most importantly, over the past two years we expanded our work on projects designed to more broadly influence industry behavior through such activities as developing broker training protocols, collaborating with others to promote city and regional disclosure legislation, and supporting academic studies through our $1 million Real Green Research Challenge (RGRC). The RGRC seeks to provide empirical evidence that demonstrates the market power and depth of green labels and understand the impact of ENERGY STAR protocols on corporate campuses. We have consistently strived to make energy efficiency a standard component of our operating platform, and we have come to routinely rely on our relationship with ENERGY STAR to transform the way buildings are built, sourced, managed, occupied and sold. We would be honored to again be recognized as your partner.
