Partners will discuss water metering strategies they have implemented and the analytical methods they have used to allow them to draw greater insights from their data. Webinar participants will also learn about new opportunities for BOMA recognition for benchmarking water and waste data for buildings.
LEED and water benchmarking
Through a consensus-based system, LEED continues to evolve to work with the building sector to help achieve high performance, including reductions in water use. LEED buildings perform better across the board than conventional buildings, including by contributing to reduced energy and water costs. In fact, many LEED credits, such as water metering, directly address a project’s water use, while several others, such as site assessment, contribute to water efficiency measures.
Arc empowers building owners and operators by providing them a platform to measure ongoing building performance, including water. Through Arc, a project’s data is tracked and translating into a comprehensive score that shows how a building is performing.
