Parmenter Realty Partners Completes BOMA's International 7-Point Challenge
MIAMI --(Business Wire)--
Realty Partners recently completed the five-year Building
Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International's 7-Point Challenge.
The challenge encouraged commercial real estate companies to reduce
their use of natural resources, non-renewable energy sources and waste
production. Benchmarks in the 7-Point Green Challenge included: decrease
energy consumption by 30 percent across portfolios by 2012; employ the ENERGY
STAR® metrics to benchmark energy performance and water usage;
provide education to engineers, owners and operators; perform energy
audits to implement low-risk and low-cost strategies; and improve
operations and building maintenance systems. Finally, as part of the
plan, BOMA asked members to work to position themselves as leaders and
solution providers to owners, tenants and the greater community.
"At Parmenter Realty Partners we incorporate holistic management
principals to the operation of our buildings. It is our goal to provide
a healthy environment for our tenants and visitors, while at the same
time reducing the impact our buildings have on energy use, water use,
and waste generated," said Steve Harrison, Managing Director Facilities
and Sustainability at Parmenter Realty Partners.
"BOMA's 7-Point Challenge was designed to encourage our industry to
voluntarily address energy and environmental issues. We were excited to
sign on to the challenge and are now, five years later, very proud to be
recognized for our efforts and the effect we have had and will have on
our environment, buildings and tenants," said Andrew Weiss, Managing
Principal and COO at Parmenter Realty Partners.
"Parmenter Realty Partners is now a proven leader on energy efficiency
and environmental issues and we look forward to working with them to
tell their 7-Point Challenge sustainability story for the whole industry
to learn from," said Joseph W. Markling, BOMA International Chair and
Chief Elected Officer, and Managing Director of Strategic Accounts with
CBRE. "Market transformation is achievable when organizations like
Parmenter Realty Partners step up to the challenge."
