Tower Square has earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR certification for 2017, which signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.
“We are pleased to accept EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification in recognition of our energy efforts at Tower Square,” commented Fred Christensen, VP CBRE/Tower Square Management. “Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship, while also lowering our energy costs.”
Commercial buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings, and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Tower Square improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization, and by making cost-effective improvements to its building.
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification.”
EPA’s ENERGY STAR performance scale helps organizations assess how efficiently their buildings use energy relative to similar buildings nationwide. A building that scores a 75 or higher on EPA’s 1-100 scale may be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification
ENERGY STAR was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 65 different kinds of products, 1.4 million new homes, and 20,000 commercial buildings and industrial plants that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA.
