LBA is a two-time ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award winner and has also been recognized as a PREMIER MEMBER of the ENERGY STAR Certification Nation. This recognition demonstrates and validates LBA’s commitment to industry leadership in efficiency, environmental stewardship and providing sustainable real estate solutions.
To improve performance and efficiency of our buildings as well as our processes, LBA has engaged a software platform to automate our energy, water and waste data directly from utilities and maintain the information in one central location. By automating data collection, human errors are minimized, providing more accurate and reliable information. The software pushes the data collected into ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager so that we can have better insight in to our building level and portfolio-wide performance.
LBA measures all utilities (energy, water and waste) that are available. By measuring utilities, we are able to identify our building’s performance and make adjustments where needed. This helps us lower operating expenses, as well as reduce our energy consumption and carbon footprint. Through utility measuring we are also able to comply with local jurisdictions in the United States that have adopted energy and water disclosure laws making measuring utilities mandatory for commercial buildings.
