We’re proud to announce we have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance. This recognition is awarded to buildings that outperform 75 percent of similar buildings nationwide. This is the fifth year Ten Penn Center has earned the ENERGY STAR, representing our sustained commitment to environmental protection.
“This recognition represents the diligent work of our team to minimize our impact on the environment and reduce operating costs,” says Dan Busch of Greenville Partners, which owns the building in partnership with Sterling Equities. “Our sustainability program helps us save hundreds of thousands of dollars each year — savings that are passed along to our tenants — without sacrificing performance or comfort in the building.”
On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings use 35 percent less energy and cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than their peers.
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” says Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification.”
