As green initiatives continue to take the lead in trends for building and property management, BOMA Baltimore strives to keep our members educated about energy and sustainability. Part of the way BOMA Baltimore members can keep up with how their building ranks against similar buildings is by using an interactive tool for benchmarking called Portfolio Manager through Energy Star. It allows you to track and assess energy and water consumption for all of the buildings you manage by using a confidential, secure online dashboard. In addition, you can view your building’s energy performance rating, estimate your carbon footprint, set investment priorities, verify and track progress of improvement projects and gain EPA recognition.

It’s time for the BOMA International Conference & The Every Building Show and this year it’s traveled across the country and into our backyard. Planned for June 26 -28, BOMA 2011 will be taking place in the beautiful Gaylord Convention Center located at the National Harbor. That’s right, just a drive down 295 in D.C. This is an incredible opportunity to expand your network of connections among BOMA members that come from across the US and around the world. This conference focuses on current trends and best practices and provides firsthand learning to what others are doing to stay ahead.

BOMA Baltimore is constantly encouraging our members to keep up with green standards and ensure that buildings are functioning as efficiently as possible. With the 7-Point Challenge and 360 Performance Program, we try to help think of ways your building could be even better. That’s why we want to stress the importance of Earth Day on April 22, 2011. Liberty Property Trust, a BOMA Baltimore member, has two programs planned to celebrate Earth Day that may give you ideas for what your building could do to help bring your tenants together and raise awareness for energy sustainability in your community.

In July 2007, BOMA International launched the Market Transformation Energy Plan and 7-Point Challenge to reduce energy consumption in commercial buildings by 30 percent by 2012. BOMA Baltimore opted in to support this 7-point challenge in 2009 and, since then, we have established our own Energy and Sustainability Committee to help lead the charge. Even local governments and associate members – providers of products and services to the commercial real estate industry- have supported the challenge.

Happy New Year! As we enter 2011, finding ways to market our properties, attract new tenants and assure those who are already on board that they’ve made the right building choice for their business and employees is most likely top of mind for all of us. To help distinguish our buildings in the marketplace, BOMA has established the BOMA 360 Performance Program. The mission of the program is to validate and recognize commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in all major areas of building operations and management. This program evaluates all parts of the building to provide a unique 360 review, making it a valuable designation to hold.
