Key 2021 accomplishments include:

  • Achieving ENERGY STAR certification for 22 properties.
  • Increasing the average ENERGY STAR score across its portfolio from an 85 in 2020 to an 87 in 2021.
  • Calculating its carbon footprint for Scope 1 & 2 emissions, as well as a portion of Scope 3, using its data in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager®.
  • Developing a new training program for the property teams to educate them on data collection and use of ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, including an FAQ document that can be shared with tenants to explain the process and address any concerns with data sharing.
  • Continuing to expand and promote its LBA Sustainability Toolbox, which includes several ENERGY STAR resources including an ENERGY STAR program overview, top 10 energy saving tips, the ENERGY STAR Treasure Hunt Guide & Treasure Maps, the ENERGY STAR Building Upgrade Value Calculator, ENERGY STAR PowerPoint training slides, and resources for pursuing ENERGY STAR certification and ENERGY STAR Tenant Space recognition.
  • Creating a resource for industrial tenants called “Sustainability as a service,” which includes a menu of LBA offerings that is shared with tenants to highlight the areas where they can advance their sustainability efforts. Prepared as a marketing piece for property teams to guide them through discussions with tenants, it has led to increased data sharing and benchmarking of industrial properties in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
