IMPORTANT! ACTION REQUIRED: Tell Your Elected Officials to Fund the ENERGY STAR® Program

July 19, 2017 1:29 PM | Heather Woods (Administrator)
The U.S. House and Senate Appropriations Committees will begin mark-ups to an appropriations bill that includes funding for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program. While ENERGY STAR enjoys widespread bipartisan support, President Trump has proposed eliminating the program in the FY18 budget.


We urge you to write your members of Congress today as they prepare to discuss the proposed 2018 budget. Tell them to support the appropriations bill that includes continued funding of ENERGY STAR.


ENERGY STAR provides a wide range of resources to the commercial real estate industry, including the popular Portfolio Manager benchmarking tool. Benchmarking building energy performance with Portfolio Manager is embedded in industry-wide operational best practices and business models. In fact, more than 500,000 commercial buildings, representing more than 40 billion square feet of commercial space, use Portfolio Manager to track and improve energy, water usage, and waste generation.


Please contact your members of Congress today! BOMA's Grassroots Action Center  has made it easy for you to do so. A pre-written letter will be sent to your lawmakers on your behalf - you just have to sign it, so act now!
