Beacon Capital Partners is receiving ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for incorporating ENERGY STAR guidelines into its standard business practices and creatively engaging tenants. Key 2012 accomplishments include:

  • Launching its Tenant Energy Awareness initiative, reaching about 35,000 tenants with festive lobby events and a variety of education and motivation tactics to encourage energy conservation. In follow-up surveys with building tenants, 75 percent of the respondents found the initiative to be informative and helpful.
  • Increasing its portfolio-wide average ENERGY STAR score to 86, representing a five-point increase since 2010, and saving an average of 11 cents per square foot of building floor space in electricity costs.

  • Developing a strategic process to benchmark and assess with an energy audit every newly acquired building. A pillar of its strategy, the "No Cost Energy Savings Program," led newly acquired buildings that implemented the program to realize energy savings of 1030 percent.
  • Using ENERGY STAR as a platform to communicate the importance of energy efficiency to a wide audience of building management teams, tenants, leasing brokers, potential buyers, and investors.
