Kilroy is proud to announce that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has for the fourth year in a row recognized us as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year. In addition, the EPA has also recognized Kilroy for the second time with its Sustained Excellence designation, which is the Agency's highest honor.
Among Kilroy's key accomplishments related to award-winning energy management programs are that 50 properties (8.4 million square feet) earned the ENERGY STAR label in 2016, representing 69% of Kilroy's eligible stabilized portfolio. In addition, our portfolio experienced a drop in energy use of 4.4%, over 8,000 mega-watt hours, despite occupancy increasing over the same time frame.
"Energy efficiency continues to be a core operational focus at Kilroy" says John Fucci, Executive Vice President, Asset Management. "The ENERGY STAR program communicates our commitment to sustainability and gives us the tools we need to achieve and demonstrate our energy reduction progress."
Congratulations to all the 2017 Energy Star partners!
