To document the emissions reduction benefits of building efficiency measures.
Identify building performance parameters that reduce conventional energy use and emissions, quantify those reductions and report them to a formal tracking program:
Track and record emissions reductions delivered by energy efficiency, renewable energy and other building emissions reduction measures, including reductions from the purchase of renewable energy credits or carbon offsets.
Report emissions reductions using one of the following:
- A third-party voluntary reporting or certification program such as U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Leaders, ENERGY STAR, the Carbon Disclosure Project or World Resources Institute / World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WRI/WBCSD) protocols
- International Organization for Standards (ISO) 14064-1:2006 Greenhouse gases, Part 1, Specification, with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals
