2020 Better Buildings Progress Report
Through the Better Buildings Initiative, market leaders are working in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to set aggressive targets, reduce waste, and share successful solutions. Across the economy, DOE works with large and small public and private organizations to quantify what works and share expertise. They also continue to achieve deep energy and cost savings, with the 950+ private and public sector Better Buildings partners collectively saving nearly 1.8 quadrillion British thermal units (Btus) of energy since the start of the program. This amounts to a savings of nearly $11 billion and 105 million tons of CO2. Partners also have reduced their water use by more than 8.5 billion gallons.
