BOMA Launches Water and Waste Challenge
The 2017 BOMA International Conference & Expo featured the official launch of BOMA International's W2 Challenge, a two-year initiative to encourage commercial real estate professionals to benchmark water and waste consumption and improve performance. With the support of a generous grant from Yardi and in partnership with BOMA local associations, BOMA International is proud to launch the new challenge to highlight and expand the sustainability efforts of the commercial real estate industry. The program will use ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager, which is already a popular tool for tracking energy use. The first year of the challenge will establish a baseline of water and waste consumption and costs, and the second year will promote performance improvements. Participants will receive progress reports, as well as guidance and best practices from BOMA and industry partners, and will be eligible for recognition for their leadership.
The challenge runs from January 1, 2018, through the end of 2019, but make a commitment now so you'll have the details you need to be ready at the start of the program. Visit www.boma.org/W2 to sign up and take your sustainability efforts to the next level.
