BOMA International's Carbon Reduction Initiative

A triad of programs have been announced as part of BOMA International's Carbon Reduction Initiative. In an effort to provide the foundational tools to implement carbon reduction, BOMA International has developed new resources and educational material based around this collective goal. 

Carbon Reduction Challenge - This global benchmarking initiative allows you to track, analyze, and improve your portfolio's carbon emissions. Make the commitment to benchmark your building emissions as a first step toward demonstrating the positive impact of the real estate sector. Choose whether you'd like to track your carbon data by using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager or by manually sharing with BOMA. Visit the website for more information and to sign up.


Decarbonization Resource Center - This will be your one-stop shop for carbon reduction strategies. Gathered from partner agencies and organizations, these resources include case studies, guides on how to reduce your carbon footprint, and legislation examples from throughout the country. The resources are in six different categories: Building Energy Strategies, Renewable Energy, Financing, Downstream & Upstream Engagement, Data Tracking, and Policy and Legislation. The current offerings are just the start, as many more resources are on their way.


Public Policy Symposium: Decarbonization - This special, inaugural event will take place on March 14, 2023. The day will feature in-depth education sessions led by industry experts, a speaker from the Biden Administration, and a networking reception on Capitol Hill. You'll learn about the tools needed to implement carbon reduction strategies that will reduce building emissions and improve building performance, while ensuring economic viability. The symposium leads into the Legislative Fly-In the following day, providing BOMA members with the opportunity to take commercial real estate's message to lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
