This report is an outcome of a roundtable convened in late 2010 by the IMT and senior policy implementers from 10 states and cities, national building energy efficiency experts, and leaders from the commercial real estate industry. The purpose was to discuss best practices for implementing commercial building benchmarking and disclosure policies. Many of these approaches have broad applicability both to current policy implementers and to those that may implement rating and disclosure policies in the future.
