Boston To Require Energy Benchmarking, Joining NY, D.C., and Others
Energy benchmarking in Boston has become a reality as the city continues its stride toward a green future. In June of 2012, Mayor Tom Menino announced a planned Building Energy Disclosure Ordinance for Boston’s industrial and commercial buildings that would require tracking and reporting of their environmental footprint.
Supporters of this—and similar—plans suggest that the simple act of exposing and reporting energy usage will encourage building owners to change their patterns of energy usage, increasing sustainability for the future.
What does this mean for you?
As Energy Star requirements are adopted—New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. are among those cities already on board—it becomes more and more important for building owners and property managers to get a jump start on tracking their own carbon emissions. In anticipation of future regulations and in the spirit of good business, we have your answer.
