EPA’s ENERGY STAR framework provides pathway to success
New findings by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reveal that nearly half of the more than 200 organizations that have earned recognition as ENERGY STAR Leaders have improved the energy efficiency of their entire building portfolios by 20% or more. Last year, President Obama announced a nationwide call to action to make commercial buildings 20% more energy efficient by 2020. EPA’s ENERGY STAR program provides a strategic pathway toward superior energy efficiency, including a focus on ongoing performance measurement and whole-building improvement, that has helped these leading organizations achieve the President’s goal.
