Better Buildings Challenge: Leadership, Transparency and Results
Leading CEOs and executives of U.S. companies, universities, school districts and state and local government are taking the Challenge by committing to reduce the energy used across their building portfolios by 20 percent or more by 2020. They will transparently showcase the solutions they use and the results they achieve to help spur billions in new investment and savings in commercial buildings and industrial plants.
The Better Buildings Challenge supports commercial and industrial building owners by providing technical assistance and proven solutions to energy efficiency. The program also provides a forum for matching Partners and Allies to enhance collaboration and problem solving in energy efficiency. Both Partners and Allies are publicly recognized for their leadership and innovation in energy efficiency.
The Department of Energy invited the City to become the first in the state to join the Better Buildings Challenge. Mayor Muoio is taking the challenge to the business community by challenging building owners and managers to reduce energy consumption 20% by 2020 (compared to 2009 baseline).
