 Be a STAR !

 During the World Workplace conference, IFMA launched a six-month energy challenge for chapter and council members. The challenge encourages members to use the on line ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to benchmark their building’s energy performance against similar facilities.

ENERGY STAR isn’t as intimidating as one might think. This free databasehoused on the Environmental Protection Agency’s websitehelps facility managers set realistic goals that comply with mandatory reporting initiatives, demonstrating their commitment to energy efficiency.
