DOE Better Buildings 2017 progress report: Successful strategies driving innovation and results
This report, released May 16 at the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings Summit in Washington, D.C., details the efforts of leading organizations to reduce energy and water waste and modernize the nation's buildings and industrial facilities.
More than 900 organizations across many diverse sectors are now part of the Better Buildings Initiative. These partners represent more than 13% of total U.S. commercial building space, about 12% of the U.S. manufacturing energy footprint, and 125 state and local governments. More than a third (345) of these organizations have taken the Better Buildings Challenge. This leadership initiative calls on CEOs, university presidents, building owners, state and local government leaders, and housing developers to reduce the energy use of their entire building portfolios by 20% within 10 years.
New energy goal achievers from the commercial and industrial sector in 2017 include Digital Realty, Deutsche Asset Management, Macy's Inc., The Tower Companies, CKE Restaurant Holding, Celanese International Corp. and Shorenstein Properties.
