Better Buildings Challenge
The Better Buildings Challenge (BBC) is a voluntary leadership initiative that asks multifamily property owners and managers to make a commitment to improving the energy and water efficiency of their property portfolios by 20% over 10 years and to share their annual progress and lessons learned with the public. The Federal Government provides support to BBC Partners in overcoming obstacles on their journeys and highlights their good work.
Each BBC Partner commits to:
- Conduct an energy/water efficiency assessment of their property portfolio and pledge an organization-wide energy/water savings goal of at least 20% within 10 years
- Publish two short case studies, showcasing an energy/water efficiency project and an organization-wide implementation model
- Report results annually by sharing energy/water performance data that demonstrates success
