BOMA International is a vocal proponent of making commercial buildings more energy efficient and has rolled out several programs to help our members achieve this goal. A critical step in this process is benchmarking your portfolio using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager and sharing your energy management data with BOMA International’s Master Account. By agreeing to share your energy management progress, you help us highlight our industry’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. BOMA uses this data to track the progress of the commercial real estate industry in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the voluntary marketplace. This allows us to show policy makers that we can reduce energy consumption without new mandates. The BOMA STARS campaign recognizes those companies that see the value in this important step as a means to effectively show that market transformation is working.
Five Reasons to Be BOMA Stars
Demonstrate to policymakers that a voluntary marketplace is working.
Understand your building’s energy consumption.
Be confident that your building’s data is secure; only aggregate data will be reported.
Improve energy management and increase NOI.
Join the movement for market transformation because it makes sound business sense.
For more than 90 years, BOMA has gone to great lengths to ensure that members’ data submitted for BOMA’s Experience Exchange Report® (EER) is kept confidential in the data collection and reporting processes. EER data is reported only in the aggregate, and no one outside key BOMA staff has access to individual building information. This has earned BOMA International the industry’s confidence, and data shared with the BOMA Master Account through Portfolio Manager is treated similarly to EER data. We do not identify the submitters by name or location within a market, and all published data is aggregated to keep this information confidential.
