Data shows that Energy Star and LEED certified buildings continue to outperform the market in terms of rents and occupancy, and in major markets across the country local governments have enacted laws requiring public disclosure of buildings’ energy efficiency, increasing the importance of energy performance in leasing and sales negotiations.
Nowhere is this more relevant than in Los Angeles, the #1 city in the nation in terms of Energy Star Certified properties.
This webinar featured discussion of current market trends, increased transparency, and the implications for commercial property owners.
- Energy Star certified buildings are more competitive – they get more foot traffic
- Putting a building “through the paces” of Energy Star benchmarking uncovers opportunities for improvement and verifies the effectiveness of past efforts
- Transparency moves markets – increased transparency around energy and water use will reward good actors
