Better Buildings is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) designed to improve the lives of the American people by driving leadership in energy innovation. Through Better Buildings, DOE partners with leaders in the public and private sectors to make the nation’s homes, commercial buildings, and industrial plants more energy-efficient by accelerating investment and sharing successful best practices.
Organizations partner with DOE to reduce portfolio-wide Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by at least 50% within 10 years. TEST
Building owners commit their organizations to 20% energy savings in 10 years and lead the market by sharing their solutions.
Through Better Plants, partners voluntarily set a specific goal, typically to reduce energy intensity by 25% over a 10-year period.
