The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International used the platform of that organization’s recent annual convention in New York City to unveil its Market Transformation Energy Plan. That plan includes a “7-Point Challenge,” with the aim of reducing the use of natural resources, non-renewable energy and waste production. The seven goals laid out by the plan:

  • Continue to work toward a decrease in energy consumption by 30% across portfolios by 2012.
  • Use the EPA’s Energy Star program to benchmark energy performance and water usage.
  • Provide education to ensure that building equipment is used and maintained properly.
  • Perform energy audits and retro-commissioning of buildings.

  • Provide community leadership by helping to reduce the industry’s role in global warming.
  • Position the industry as leaders and solution providers.
