Building Owners and Managers Association

Improving the Performance of the Commercial Real Estate Industry


BOMA is a vocal proponent of making commercial buildings more energy efficient and has rolled out several programs to help our members achieve this goal. A critical step in this process is benchmarking your portfolio using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager and sharing your energy management data with BOMA’s Master Account. By agreeing to share your energy management progress, you help us highlight our industry’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. BOMA uses this data to track the progress of the commercial real estate industry in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the voluntary marketplace. This allows us to show policy makers that we can reduce energy consumption without new mandates. The BOMA STARS campaign recognizes those companies that see the value in this important step as a means to effectively show that market transformation is working.
Five Reasons to be BOMASTARS
Demonstrate to policymakers that a voluntary marketplace is working.
Understand your building’s energy consumption.
Be confident that your building’s data is secure; only aggregate data will be reported.
Improve energy management and increase NOI.
Join the movement for market transformation because it makes sound business sense.
“BOMA continues to be a go to resource on pending legislation affecting our industry, on training and education for our managers and building engineers and for networking. BOMA's current topics and leading experts that speak at the luncheons enhance RiverRock's internal training programs. Our participation in The Office Building of the Year Awards is very important to our clients and staff. We use our wins each year in our marketing campaigns and materials.”
