ENERGY STAR Challenge Participant Story

The Real Estate Roundtable
Washington, District of Columbia
Date Joined: March 14, 2005

In partnership with EPA, The Real Estate Roundtable is launching a new effort to bring together real estate leaders that comprise The Roundtable with major tenants in their buildings to help achieve the goals of the ENERGY STAR Challenge. The members of The Real Estate Roundtable and many of their tenants, such as Bank of America and the General Services Administration, are committed to high performance buildings, but have not had a forum for sharing ideas and advancing their joint energy and environmental objectives. The Real Estate Roundtable is committed to providing this forum, to help achieve significant advancements in energy efficiency and environmental protection across the real estate industry.

The Real Estate Roundtable's mission is to bring together leaders of the nation's top public and privately held real estate ownership, development, lending and management firms with the leaders of major national real estate trade associations to jointly address key national policy issues relating to real estate and the overall economy. Collectively, Roundtable members hold portfolios containing over 5 billion square feet of developed property valued at nearly $700 billion. Participating trade associations represent more than 1 million people involved in virtually every aspect of the real estate business.
