BOMA International Wins 13th ENERGY STAR Award
BOMA International has been notified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that it has been recognized with the 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions to energy efficiency. BOMA International now has received a total of 13 ENERGY STAR awards, making it the most decorated commercial real estate association. The Sustained Excellence award is the highest honor among ENERGY STAR awards, recognizing partner organizations that go above and beyond the recognition criteria and demonstrate year after year how energy efficiency protects public health and the environment while delivering economic benefits.
BOMA was recognized this year based on a number of notable programs and initiatives, including: conducting outreach related to the ENERGY STAR building score update; promoting the importance of ENERGY STAR as it was threatened in the federal appropriations process; the ground-breaking W2 Challenge that promoted water and waste benchmarking using EPA’s Portfolio Manager® tool; and a variety of additional, long-running energy management trainings, resources and programs. Congratulations to all BOMA members and partners for their part in achieving this honor, and congratulations to all member companies that also earned ENERGY STAR awards this year.
