- Develop and implement a energy management plan consistent with the ENERGY STAR Energy Management Guidelines and its TEEM approach to continue to achieve energy savings for its clients;
- Measure, monitor and validate the energy performance of its facilities and its customers facilities by using its online reporting system and tools such as those offered through ENERGY STAR;
- Foster the importance of energy efficiency to its staff and community through communication and education;

About ENERGY STAR
ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 50 different kinds of products, new homes and commercial and industrial buildings. Products and buildings that have earned the ENERGY STAR designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the government. In 2007, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved about $16 billion on their energy bills while reducing the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 27 million vehicles.
