ENERGY STAR® Challenge for IFMA chapters and councils

Aug. 01, 2013

In October 2012, IFMA launched a 12-month energy challenge for chapter and council members. Using an online ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to benchmark their building’s energy performance against similar facilities, IFMA chapters will compete for having the most participants and IFMA councils will compete for the most ratable and unique/non-ratable buildings.

Participants will have access to sector-specific resources (including free benchmarking reports) that will support ongoing energy-related improvements. Winners will be announced at IFMA’s World Workplace 2013, held Oct. 2-4, in Philadelphia, Pa.

Why participate?

IFMA’s partnership with ENERGY STAR can help facility managers benchmark their buildings and save energy. We’ve developed resources and tools specifically tailored to meet the needs of our members and challenge you to reduce the energy use of your building by 15 percent from the baseline data entered.

Housed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website, this free database helps facility managers set realistic goals, demonstrating their commitment to energy efficiency and compliance with mandatory reporting initiatives.
