Better Buildings Through Benchmarking: St. Louis Region Voluntary Energy Benchmarking Pledge
USGBC-Missouri Gateway is challenging buildings to benchmark building energy use - because you can't manage what you don't measure! Our goal is to help buildings track energy use, improve building energy efficiency, and save money! Using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, a free on-line software tool developed by U.S. EPA, you can measure progress for your building. Learn more about Better Buildings Through Benchmarking at
WHAT IS BENCHMARKING? It's measuring how much energy a building consumes and comparing this to other buildings.
WHY BENCHMARK? According, to ENERGY STAR data, buildings who benchmark for three years saw an average energy savings of 7%. You can't manage what you don't measure!
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? Take this our Voluntary Energy Benchmarking Pledge and we'll email you a badge you can use to promote your participation. You'll have until the end of of the current year to benchmark your building in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager using the previous year's energy data as a baseline. Then report back to us through our reporting form in ENERGY STAR, which we will also share by e-mail.
We pledge to benchmark our building’s energy use with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager and report our progress annually!
