BOMA Facts

BOMA urges you to write you members of Congress to protect ENERGY STAR. President Trump has proposed eliminating the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program in the FY 2018 budget. Congress is currently considering an appropriations bill that will directly impact ENERGY STAR. Your voice is needed.

ENERGY STAR provides a wide range of resources to the commercial real estate industry, including the popular Portfolio Manager benchmarking tool. Benchmarking building energy performance with Portfolio Manager is embedded in industry-wide operational best practices and business models. In fact, more than 500,000 commercial buildings – representing more than 40 billion square feet of commercial space – use Portfolio Manager to track and improve energy and water use and waste generation.
