  • Engaging building occupants to help shape their environment
  • Designing leases to encourage environmental performance
  • Improving climate preparedness, from a municipal as well as organizational perspective
  • Complying with new state laws and city ordinances, such as the City of Boston Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO)
